    Hi! @sarmartur

    Sometimes it works out okay, but many times the drake will grow up and want to mate too much with the female, and she can get hurt, or worse. But we cannot know ahead of time.

    Yes, you can keep two drakes together.....If you only have two Ducks it will be fine.....Do not add One Hen to the mix.....Then you will have aggressive issues......;)
    One Drake and one Hen are also fine together ...:)

    Best of Luck...:)

    Cheers!

    one hen will still usually be bred too often, you will have to watch close. if i could only have two i would have two females so you wont have to worry.
