There should be one male for every two hens.
Your gonna want enrich hens they can Seperate.One is going to have more hens then other probably.They like to Seperate and take mini dates quite often.I had a flock of twelve who split up every spring.
Yes everyone is fighting, my females my males...males mating with each other. It's a mess. Thats why I was trying to even out my ratio.
The females have deep quacks. The males have curly tail feathers and depending on the breed the head feathers are green on males. With my jumbo Peking and the regular Peking I had to go by the tail feathers.
Yeah I understand what your going through.Do you want more ducks?I would suggest maybe four more females,maybe five if you have space,or maybe even get rid of One male and get four hens.
One time I added three drakes with my already two drakes and it was an absolute mess,the drakes lived here for awhile and never even intergrated,they just raped the hens when they felt like it and pretty much were outcast,3 amigos.
Yikes. I never realized what a brutal species they can be. Hell, it was easier to bring a new cat home with the other cats then this! They are cool pets. I just dont wanna end up with a crazy lot of ducks. It was fine all along till they became adults.
Always fine until adults,or I guess until spring.I have had drakes rape my younger drakes,it is not safe.They seem to do it as a way to get back at them,their real kid abusers.Might wanna Seperate drakes,they can tear up another males privateparts and cause other issues if they succeed at raping one another.
Not correct...One Drake per 10 Hens actually works. Three too five also..And live separately.
I have read the ratio should be atelast one to four,ten seems me a lot.
They breed constantly and the more Hens depending on breed the better..
