Hello!! I have the pleasure of being a Duck Mom! Of course, since I have never done this before I will have lots of questions. I'm not sure if this site is meant for ducks, since its called backyard chickens, but I have seen a lot of things on here that have already been helpful. I have, what I believe to be, a white female Pekin... I've only had it a couple of weeks and already things have rapidly changed. This may sound silly but, I got a little duck to aid my "baby fever"... it seems to be helping, and I definitely feel like a mom. Unfortunately, my boyfriend took this wonderful thing and got it a friend. I love the little thing, but my heart is crushed... as cute as the new (I believe a male Swedish) duck is, it has changed how my Pekin acts. With the difference in age and size my Pekin is "mom" to the Swedish... My biggest concern is that they are different breeds and different sexes. Will they try to mate? If they do, is that bad? My biggest goal is to still aid my "baby fever"... I want them to be friends, but would still like them to be somewhat dependent on me, and very social. Is that even a possibility? I hope there are answers... Also, my profile pic. Those are my ducks... please tell me if I'm wrong about the breeds. Thank you!!
