    Okay well out of my 6 mallards I believe I have 3 drakes and 3 hens. I'm worried about when the time comes to mating season because I'm afraid for my girls and my smallest drake (Plop.) I'm afraid that the 2 bigger drakes will attack him and seriously injure or kill him. Can someone help me?

    What sort of help do you want?? Either get rid of some drakes or get more hens.

    I can't get anymore or get rid of any [​IMG] so that's my only problem.

    Oh dear... well then I think you need to make two separate enclosures so they can see each other but not get to each other.

    Good luck!

    Thanks that's what I was planning on doing, hopefully I can get some more hens next spring. I was hoping for Welsh Harlequins.
