    I suggest a hen, maybe even two if thee hens would probably be your best choice.

    Welcome to BYC! For a drake the ratio should be at least 3 females. For the females safety.

    Pekins are a good choice! The cayuga drake will be a little bit smaller than the pekin hens and they might not get as beat up by him

    Pekins are always my first choice tho
