The Backyard Duck Book - Nyiri Murtagh New softcover book For the Love of Ducks

Nyiri Murtagh was raised in a semi-rural environment where there was always a chook, duck or peacock wandering past the front door. He remembers being fascinated by his pet Muscovy duck at the age of three, but it wasn't until the late 1980s that he began to look for another hobby aside from his car, and he discovered the wonderful world of waterfowl.

At that time, books on waterfowl were pretty much the same as they are now, hard to get, and when Nyiri did find some, they never answered his questions. So he began going to shows, purely as an observer, and spending all his free time watching his birds. It wasn’t long before he was travelling all around Australia, purchasing ducks and geese to add to his collection. While Nyiri doesn't show his birds, quite a number of the ducks and geese that he breeds are purchased for showing by exhibitors from around Australia.
