This book has been written primarily to meet the criteria for the housing, feeding, nutritional, and health management of ducks for both veterinary students and poultry entrepreneurs. Although ducks provide high-quality nutritional food through their meat and eggs, their production is still lower than that of chickens. Ducks naturally feed on insects, snails, kitchen waste, paddy grains, and weeds, but supplementary feed is also necessary for optimal production. We would like to express our gratitude to the contributors of the various chapters for their timely and informative contributions.

The book is divided into several chapters, including housing, feeding, nutritional, and health management. Under health management, infectious and non-infectious diseases are discussed in detail. The diseases are listed alphabetically within each chapter, except for an index that helps the reader quickly locate the required information.

Appropriate photographs related to the health and disease management of ducks have been included in the relevant sections of the book.
