Hello, I may be in the wrong place but looking for some poultry advise. I ordered some khaki campbells that will be here soon. I know this site caters to chicken owners but my question should cross any species barriers. I ordered 15 un-sexed campbells and once I can distinguish the drakes from the hens I plan to get rid of all but one or two drakes. So here is my question, I'd like to keep the drake(s) with the hens but once they reach sexual maturity will I need to be concerned about cracking open a fertilized egg? At some point I may be interested in raising ducklings but for now my only goal is eggs for consumption. I know keeping the drake in the pen can keep the flock more calm but as I said not sure if this will conflict with my current goals. And if I decide to breed, what steps will that consist of that differ from everyday gathering of eggs? Sorry if this question makes you experienced guys and gals roll your eyes in obviousness of the answer but I have no clue as to what I'm doing here.
