    I have 2 Swedish drakes,that i have had from babies.Hoping they were male/female,but they are almost a year old and a while back figured out they were to males. The problem is that Ben has decided he wants Jerry!!!! Will this pass in time or do i need to get them a female? If i get them 1 female will they fight eachother over her??? Any ideas will be very helpful....Thanks all

    Ducks will breed anything, up to and including a tin bucket or old rubber boot.

    If you are going to get a female, you will need 10-12 females at a minimum, or you are going to have problems with too many males and not enough females.

    If you like your current ducks and they aren't fighting, just leave things like they are. Your ducks aren't doing anything wrong.

    Guess you know which one is the dominant one now too. LOL

    Lots of animals will mate all kinds of other things, alive or not, to show dominance.
