    I have three females and one drake (plus two new ducklings that are not sexed) and i was wondering if you have to keep your drake in a separate house at night?

    I don't either. Now if you have multiple drakes you may have to keep them separated to keep the peace. When I had more than one drake housed together We made stalls and the boys had their own bedroom. I have 2 drakes now but they each have their own houses with their girls.
