    I am thinking about getting 2 ducks and i have read that drakes are quieter than the lady ducks. Can i have 2 drakes or will they fight with each other? Whats the best boy girl combo with just 2 ( or 3) ducks.

    Also these drakes would be with my chicken hens. Would I need to worry about the drakes trying to mount the hens? Thanks for the advice.

    I had my drake in with the chickens and needless to say to rooster kicked the crap out of him for trying to mount the hens.

    I've seen two drakes together and they were fine though
