    We got 3 Pekins from TSC. I'm really starting to believe that we have 2 males and 1 female. Will the female have a hard time... Should we find a new home for one male?

    Take a deep breath.

    If you have two drakes and one female, you probably need to change some things.

    More females, keep the two drakes, separate them by sex, keep the female and look for more.

    For now, I'd plan how to keep them separate but able to see each other.

    Also - not to worry you - but some drakes are just rough on females. It's something you'll need to watch for in any case.
