    My year old dreak is in love with a turkey. She just laid on an egg and he's protecting her and flips out when I pick him up.

    When a Drake mates with a hen it can kill them, so I would be careful.

    True but isn't it a turkey? Which is a lot bigger than the duck so surely a duck wouldn't be big enough to harm a turkey like they would a chicken? But they should still be careful because there definitely could be risks still and maybe they could damage a turkey idk. Probably can damage anything other than a duck. I wouldn't let them mate but being a pair/cute couldn't hurt hah
