    Our male Pekin passed away so we are down to 2 females (a Pekin and a Rouen). Will they be alright just the two of them for company? They seem a little lost right now- do they need more duck companions?

    Two ducks will be fine. The problem is that if one of them dies that leaves a lone duck - not good. A flock of at least 3 makes for company if something happens to one of the birds.
