    It's best that they have a friend of some sort. Maybe try to buy a hen for him that is already 6 months old or older. That way she will be able to breed and you can get eggs from her. Khaki Campbells are the world's best egg laying duck breed. You could then incubate their eggs and get ducklings.

    He might bite her a couple times or she might bite him to establish the hierarchy but they will eventually get used to each other.
