    Has anyone ever kept more than one drake for three hens during breeding season?
    I can't decide which drake to keep. [​IMG] I have a mixed breed silver, and a purebred Rouen.
    I love my ducks but the silvers are my favourite (SaxonyxRouen). However part of me wants purebred ducks and is thinking of just keeping the grey hen and culling the grey drake.
    I also want Welsh Harlequins so bad but not enough room yet! Need to build another coop! [​IMG]

    I'd either cull one or set up a separate area to keep one separated while the other stays with the ducks... you could always trade them out on a schedule...
