Breeding ducks

We are starting to breed ducks. We have 3 hens and 1 drake. Is that enough to have a decent amount of ducklings? Thanks!

you didn't say what kind of ducks but let's take Pekin for example, each hen lays on average 200 eggs per year so you'd have the potential for 200 ducklings per hen per year....................yep that's a decent amount for the average Joe.
