    I have a issue my father won’t let me keep my drakes because he wants egg layers but doesn’t want to have duckling. We don’t want to give them to any random people or have to kill them. So I’m wondering if we could give them to someone here. We also have another hen Rouen with the drakes. The drakes are a Blue Swedish and a White duck (we can’t tell what he is).

    I am sure there are a lot of people that would gladly take them from you on here. I would if you are close enough to me. Where are you located at?

    I am wondering if the female is a different breed and is much bigger will the smaller Drake’s still try to breed with her?

    In your mind what is the best egg laying duck?

    Well I know my Runners and Buffs are great egg layers.
    Pekins are great egg layers as are Khaki Campbells there are others too.

    Good news for all who care. We have decided that the drakes will be in a separate pond, that we had pushed aside because a little time ago because there are cows in the pen. But we noticed that if there were to duck the cows could never hurt them because they could swim away into the middle which is much to deep for the cows.

    You know you should still provide feed for them daily and shelter?

    Hope it all works out.
