I have 4 pekin ducks, 3 drakes and one hen. we want to get 2 more hens to stop the drakes from fighting. my mom wants to hatch some of the eggs for her friend. if we were to hatch them, could i take two of the girl babies and have them be our hens (once they grow up of course.) we won't know who the father is but we won't be hatching any more eggs, so would it be wrong to put the babies with their possible parents to be their mates? would their parents know that they are their parents?

A male duck wont care if it is his daughter. Ducks don't know the difference. If you aren't breeding them, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

alright, thank you so much. at first i was worried about the eggs, then i realized we wouldn't be hatching them so it didn't matter. now i just have to learn how to sex them from a very early age....hmmmm.
