So I recently bought 2 ducklings hoping that they were both were females since I only have 3 Drakes one being older and the other 2 about 5 and a half months, and only 1 came out female, even though I want eggs, I'm scared for her to break a leg or get crushed while all of them try to mate with her at the same time. I haven't combined the group of ducks yet but I'm thinking about it, they are still ducklings and haven't layed eggs. Should I keep them
separated or not?

4 drakes and one hen ? Isn't going to work. Drakes are extremely sexually aggressive, and that many will injure/kill her. Even one drake to one hen is generally one drake too many. Can you rehome most of the drakes and buy some adult duck hens ?
