HELP with DRAKES AND DUCKS

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I have 1 Rouen Drake and 4 females (1 Rouen, 1 Blue Swedish and 2 Pekin), my friend who is moving out of town is giving me his 1 year old Cayuga drake. I really like the Cayuga. However, I wouldn't know what to do, are 4 ducks enough for 2 drakes? I know there will be fights. Will they settle down after a while?

 

HELP PLEASE

You might get a better answer in the duck forum. I do know that two drakes will often go at it constantly, plus that's probably too many for your hens, they will be constantly harassed.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
