My drake is good sized. We have wild mallards that visit our pond. They get pretty big. My drake is as big as they are. My hens are smaller.
We enjoy the ducks. They are quite entertaining and noisier than our chickens...messier than the chickens too. Our ducks are nearly a year old now. They discovered our pond this spring. It's fun to watch them learn new things. They started by just playing around the edges. Now they swim all over it and dive.
The girls lay an egg every day. I know they are fertile, but we just eat them. I think I might let them hatch some, if one of the girls gets broody.
