Hello! I'm New here and was wondering about culling my drakes. I have 2 cayugas and 1 Indian Runner that are about 12 weeks (came together from the farm @ 4 wks- they were the last ducklings they had) The runner and 1 cayuga got their drake feathers and I had planned on keeping the ducks for eggs. I'm getting 5 more runners today - approx 8 weeks old, and want to cull the male cayuga. Should I wait until the newbies are a bit older, or would it be okay to cull him today (or near future)? My plan is to keep only the runner drake I currently have and cull any future drakes so as to keep 1 drake and the rest hens.
