Loretta is one year old, so her quack has been established along with her daily egg laying
So, if he is a boy. What sort of problems should I expect. I’ve only ever had two girls. Now one boy and girl? If feeding wasn’t enough of a pain, I anticipate a host of other issues. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks guys!
Well over mating for one. And usually at the top. It's best for a drake to have at least min of 3 females. 4 and up is optimal. But 3 will work. And for feeding why not just use an all flock feed which is formulated for all poultry and put oyster shell in another bowl and your egg layers will use as needed.
Is there anything I can do to prevent overmating, aside from adding ducks? Probably not. Also, Miss Lydia, do you think it is conclusively male from that video? Thank you!!!
You could separate them, but that’s not much fun.
Any chance he’s still a girl? Suppose there is no neutering for ducks . We were so optimistic when it started quacking. But then it just stopped. Thanks for your help. Any more input would mean the world.
I don’t think so. She could be faking but I doubt it.
Do those early quacks mean anything? They were clearly quacks if I ever heard them. But they sure did stop. And she was young for quacking.
Post another video at 8 weeks. By then, if it’s a girl, she will be making some pretty clear quacking noises.
I’d just go with getting a few more females that way he can spred the love around if he decides he is a he soon.
