Hi. I've been searching around a lot and I can't find much information on keeping groups of drakes together, without any females. Does anyone know if you can keep a group of just male ducks together without fighting? I want about six runners. I've always liked ducks and I'm training my border collie mix to herd so they could be good practice for him. We have a lot of space and a pond that could be cleared out a little to make a nice duck pond. I want just males mostly because I have read they are quieter. Also, I read somewhere that they are better for herding. I don't know why that would be, though... Maybe they don't panic as easily? Anyway, does anyone know if a group of male runner ducks could live together happily without any girls?
