    mallards are usually grouped in with the bantam ducks (not always)
    but they will breed with them so your eggs will no longer be pure.(if that matters?)
    but yes thy would be fine

    I keep calls and mallards together. That being said Mallard Drakes can be too aggressive sometimes and will have to be separated.

    thanks everyone! Then me and dad will have to make separate homes for them, i am planning on getting grey, snowy, and pastel call ducks, white and normal mandarin ducks, and wood ducks for bantams. And I will get mallards and snowy mallards

    If they are really Mallards and not the generic gray colored ducks that the hatcheries sell as Mallards, then they are bantam ducks.

    They should be fine with other bantam ducks,
