    I have 2 pekin ducks. I was wondering what other kind of bird i can raise in the back yard that will not fly and get along with the ducks.

    I don't think it'll be very helpful to post this in the quail thread. Hehe.
    Quail won't be very good in this situation, although they are ground-dwellers, they will fly very fast and fairly high when spooked and could easily fly over a fence. They are also too small to be hanging around ducks that could potentially squash them/ducks who they don't know very well.

    You could try getting chickens and clipping their wings so they don't fly away.
    Looking for birds that can get along with ducks really depends on their behaviour and personality.
