    I have a month old duck, and I'm thinking of getting another. I'm fairly sure that he's a male, and if he is, I wasn't to sure if two drakes by themselves would fight or not?

    2 should be fine. But like anything that breathes... sometimes they just don't get along.

    My first pair of ducks were both drakes. They both lived happily together for many years.

    Without any ducks(ie; females) around they will likely get on okay, when you bring in mixed sexes that is when things can be a touch more complicated.

    I currently have an all drake flock of four and they love eachother! They were not even raised together.
