    we have chickens and ducks, raised together since July as babies. 11 hens, 1 rooster, 2 drakes and 1 duck. Our duck recently started laying and I wonder if that has something to do with our drake sometimes both drakes chasing our rooster.
    If I go up to Elvis (drake) he walks away but then soon he's back to chasing Jerry (roo).

    I wondered if I found a home for one drake if maybe that would help?..

    [​IMG] Finding a home for one drake might help, and would make life a lot better for the one duck. If the drakes start turning their attentions to breeding the chicken hens you may have a serious problem on your hands.

    yeah i do have to agree but sadly many people only want female ducks so it might be hard to find him a home.
