On Memorial Day weekend, I got three Pekin ducklings- just hatched that day and the day before. They were not sexed, and we were keeping our fingers crossed that we'd end up with at most, one male, as I've read about the voracious sexual appetite these guys can have.
Well, it turns out we have two males and a female. And they've recently begun ACTING like two males.... they are aggressively mounting her, roughing her up, etc. As I understand, having more ladies in the mix will curb this issue.
1. Is that true? Seems odd that they'd be less rough just because there's more ladies.
2. Does it matter what breed of ladies I bring in to the flock?
I'm looking to balance the flock this weekend and have found some folks with ducks, just want to make sure I'm not barking up the wrong tree. Thanks!
