Can i put adult runners with adult khaki campbells in the same pens together?
I dont see why not. I had my Khakis in with Runners, Pekin and Swede mix ducks. My Khakis slept with my Runners.
Thanks. Just i am new to ducks. I wasnt sure if the males fight like the rooster do. So ducks are easier going that way then chickens?
Oh I dont know about drakes. My Runners were just babies then, about 10 to 16 weeks when I put the Khakis in with them. All the ducks on that side of the duck house were females. My 2 drakes came from another BYC person and they have grown up together and never fight over the girls. If I was to bring another drake in I dont know what would happen. I have a happy family and dont want to break that up
..Does drakes fight like roosters do when they are not brought up together?This is what i really need to know.
Depends on breed I think, but also on ratio. If only a few drakes with enough girls they'll be fine. They may have a few pecks but generally are ok. I know with muscovies its 1:4 I think..? But unsure on your breeds.
How many drakes and girls do you have altogether?
All of my larger ducks are together, Khakis, runners and scovys (5 females to 3 males). They are not with my smaller ducks tho'.
ok. Great. I think it will be ok. I will watching to make sure.
