RSPCA welfare standards for ducks
Our detailed RSPCA welfare standards have been developed to represent good practice in the care and welfare of commercially-farmed meat ducks (domestic/common) at all stages of their lives.

Next planned revision of the standards
There are currently no plans to publish a revised version of the standards.
RSPCA farmed duck standards technical advisory group
We're currently in the process of forming the new RSPCA Standards Technical Advisory Groups (STAGs) for all the species specific standards, this is following a consultation on the RSPCA welfare standards for farm animals development process. Further details of the new STAGs will be available here soon.
