    Can my 3 Pekin drakes live together in harmony? There are no females in the pen, but I do have one in another part of the barn. Will the boys get along or will they always being trying to out man the other? Also, if I must re-home some boys, how do you all go about doing that? Anyone in IN looking for 3 boys & a girl? Thanks, Pam

    They fight for dominance. Each drake wants to be the top dog. The only way to get them to stop is to stop their hormones which is not possible (at least I dont think it is). I had to get rid of my pair of pekins because I was afraid my muscovy drake would kill the pekin drake. I put an ad on craigslist and got tons of responses. You have to be very careful though becuase most respones will be from people who just want to eat them. Ask lots of questions and when you find a place you like, take the ducks and check the place out. Dont let someone just come and pick them up or chances are they will become food.
