If I get more drakes will they fight?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I've got two Pekin drakes now, no ducks. I was thinking about getting two muscovy drakes. Is this a good idea?

When I introduced the drakes I have now to each other they nipped at each other's necks a bit and then they were fine.

I had a group of five muscovies, all ended up being males. Once mature they fought constantly and not little fights. It was not a good situation at all.

If and when muscovies decide to fight, it is a serious thing.  Why mess with what appears to be a good situation?

Okay, I won't. I just wasn't sure how drakes were for fighting, since I've never had any that fought before.
