    I am going to purchase 6 new duck, ideally 2 of each breed. I was wondering if batams such as mini appleyard duck were able to go with khaki's and harliquins.

    I just rehomed three Pekins and two Rouens because they were sooo much bigger than my tiny mallards and they seemed to really rough. I will only stick with the medium to small breeds from now one.

    I have 1 pekin and two call ducks together. They do great, even in the somewhat small space they have when they are not swimming. If anything, the smaller call ducks are more aggressive.

    Khakis and WHs aren't HUGE breeds, IIRC, so I think they would be OK with bantams. [​IMG]

    No, I was asking if ducks come in minature size. Like how chickens come in bantam size, I was wondering if ducks do too.

    Yes, I think they do. You can also google to see what kinds would be available.​
