    So, I think I need to find a home for two of my 5 month old male ducks. They are becoming aggressive with each other and with my females. The fact is I have too many males (6:4). I hate that I even have to write this. But, if any of you knows someone in Georgia that would give these 2 sweet boys a safe and wonderful home please have them contact me. Or if you have any suggestions on how to deal with the 6 males to 4 males ratio I would appreciate that as well. I'm trying to do what's best for them and for my other ducks. They are Indian runner and cayuga mix and are black/ green.

    Best bet would be the run 2 flocks. One with all males and the other all females or one male and the rest females. 4:4 is still going to be hard on your girls. What about adding just females to the flock?

    It's hard to find just females, how would I go about this?

    Quite a few members keep all drakes together and it may work as long as they can't see the females or hear them. I think in your situation it's best to re home because they will continue to fight and one will most likely get injured or killed. I have had to make that decision for the best for my flock it is hard but to see how much it helps the flock makes it better.
