    My Runner has 7 females if he had any more he’d have to have a vacation. Poor guy but he’s a happy fellow! My other 2 drakes have 4 females each.

    That sounds like a fantastic ratio. Welshies are the best — absolute favorite standard ducks out there. A good choice!

    Yes, I would think so, if they're 11 weeks old they should be quacking by now.
    My Khaki Campbells are 10 weeks old and have been quacking their heads off for several weeks already. They quack ALL the time and are super noisy.
