Adding ducks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've had a pair of WH for almost a year. I just love them and decided I'd like a pair of Ancona as well. Will the new pair stick together? Or will they all intermingle? And one will be the dominant male like with chickens? My welsh were my first ducks ever so I'm not sure how the dynamics of 2 pairs would go.Thank you for any insights :-)

I all depends on the ducks. So ducks are more social than others and will want to be friends with all the ducks they meet and others will only want one friend. Put them in pens beside each other for the first week or so and see how they act, this will let meet each other without being able to hurt each other
