One of my ducks died, should I get another duck for my other Pekin duck?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Monday morning I heard one of my Pekin ducks going nuts outside, and I walked out there and only found one duck, with other feathers all over the place (some feathers were bloody) and that's when I relized something got one of my ducks. I went outback to go see if I could find the duck, I did, it was horrifying, we buried it, so we didn't leave the poor thing out there in the woods. But now my question is that I don't know if I should get a new duck for my other Pekin duck. Will my Pekin get along with a new duck, or should I get a duckling? And would it be ok if it was a different breed of duck?? Please help😊

Ducks are flocking animals so your lone duck will need a friend. Do you know the gender of your lone duck?

I'd start locally through CL. It should be relatively easy to fine an adult male if you're okay with a male (your ducks don't need to be the same breed, but should be in the same weight class if they are of different genders.)

If you have a male, introducing a duckling may be harder than if you have a female (not always, but this has been my experience.)

My Pekin is a female, so I would prefer another female with her (because the one that died was a female too) but, if there is only males then that's what I would get.
