Abstract: Social acceptance of duck raising and consumption of their products were investigated via a questionnaire conducted among the inhabitants of Wad Medani city (Gezira State – Sudan). About 22% and 25% of them have, respectively, eaten ducks' eggs and meat before. They preferred ducks' eggs (26%) and meat (38%) to that of chicken's. The taste of ducks' eggs and meat, as evaluated by the inhabitants, was 39%, 62% as excellent, 36%, 32% as good, 21%, 6% as fair and 4%, 0.0% as bad, respectively. The study showed that, about 60% of the sample will consume ducks' products if they are accessible, and home duck keeping practice is acceptable to 68.78% of the sample. There are only very few religious and social taboos that discourage or prohibit raising and consuming ducks' eggs and meat in central Sudan.
