    I can't believe I wasn't more careful. I mistakenly thought all the ducklings were female. So, I just bought 3. Now, I checked with the feed store where I bought them and indeed, no, they were mixed. I was planning on having 3 females and one is so much bigger i think it is a male.
    How is life going to be different with 1 male and 2 females?
    Thanks for any advice and info.

    One male and two females may not be a problem at all. 2 drakes and 1 duck on the other hand might necessitate the rehoming of one drake.
