Although ducks are also good for meat production, they are primarily raised for eggs.
Oftentimes, these eggs are made into balut, a cooked day incubated egg regarded by most Filipinos as delicacy.
Most of the breeds raised for balut are Pateros duck or itik. The breed is a good layer but is a non-sitter.
What makes the egg of Itik Pinas is that it produces eggs which has an average weight of 65 grams a piece, consistent with the requirement of the balut industry. According to PCAARRD, the strains of Itik Pinas are products of organized breeding and selection that focus on the uniformity of physical characteristics, higher and predictable egg production performance, and consistent egg quality.
Itik Pinas Kayumanggi lays egg for the campbel, time at 20 weeks old. Egg production per duck per year is From the start until 18 weeks old, this strain consumes Its daily feed intake at laying period is grams.
Itik Pinas Itim starts to lay eggs at 23 weeks old. However, its annual egg production per duck is only From the start until 18 weeks old, it consumes Vampbell 22 weeks, the Itik Pinas Khaki starts laying eggs.
At 29 weeks is its age at peak of production. Like Itik Pinas Itim, its annual egg production per duck is The daily feed intake at laying period is grams. This proposition is based on overseas experiences and demand trends in the Philippines. That is, per capita consumption of duck eggs has either been in decline in traditional duck-producing countries as a result of economic development and changing lifestyles and consumption patterns, while domestic statistics show that demand for duck eggs has been stagnating in the past decade.
Duck raising has been practiced in the Philippines for so long that no one knows when it exactly started. The early Chinese traders reportedly introduced it. When Spaniards came, it was already a kuaki industry in Pateros, Rizal, which is still the center of duck production in the country. Although it ranks second only to chicken for egg and meat production, duck is also an important sub sector of the Philippine poultry industry. It provides employment and income-generating opportunities for Filipinos, particularly those in the rural and marginal areas.
In addition, duck raising help offset the effects of climate change, particularly in the production of methane, a greenhouse gas. Recent studies show that methane in the atmosphere has more than doubled during the past years.
Riceland has been cited as one of the major contributors of methane in the atmosphere.
Promising prospects in agriculture: Duck raising – Edge Davao
Alan Teramura, a botany professor at the University of Maryland, said. Ducks can help contain the release of methane into the atmosphere — aside from reducing labor costs and the use of expensive chemicals. According to the Department of Agriculture DAthe integrated rice-duck farming system is one of the best strategies kkhaki increasing rice productivity as it reduces labor and inputs characterized by its devoid use of artificial fertilizers and chemicals.
Thus, shift from conventional way of planting using inorganic materials to this technology provides additional source of income and itim to farmers. The said technology, the DA says, is environmentally sound as it restores the relationship of people with nature.

Rice-duck farming system is a sustainable system as it helps in eliminating the contamination of soil, water and air brought by chemical substances which are harmful to both nature and human. Their paddling movement cultivates the soil and destroys the weeds. Its benefits to the farmers are immediately felt and tangible.
