    Hi everyone! SO four months ago i adopted 2 Indian runner ducklings - well it ends up that they were both males. [​IMG] I got them only for eggs and ducklings. So female wise, should i buy one or two full grown females, or should I get them as ducklings? Would the males over mount her if I get one? Thank you so much!

    I would at least get two females to go with the two drakes .. if you want a strong relationship with them then u want them as ducklings .. online you can order them sexed so u can get exactly what you want

    X2.. I'd get at least 2 ducks per drake it's just easier on the ducks when mating season comes around. If you get ducklings you'll have to let the ducks get to at least 4-5 months old before putting them in with your drakes or you could put them in danger.
