Mandarans

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was wondering if when I order mandarin duck pair at a hatchery I was thinking if they would give me a female and a male duck? Also can I keep them with chickens and 2 other ducks? My last question is can I keep them is Michigan or will they die. Thanks :D

Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks. I've had a few, but never any Mandarin Ducks although they are certainly adorable. I would suggest posting your question on our Duck section under Other Backyard Poultry in the Forum at the top of the page. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

The duck forum is the best place to get your duck questions answered. But I've been researching ducks for the coming spring myself and can tell you that some hatcheries will sex the ducklings and some only offer straight run. The problem with housing ducks with chickens is that the drakes will try to mate with the chickens and since their anatomy is different from a roosters, they can injure the chickens.

 

Here's a link to the duck forum:

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
