    I just found out my 2 pekins are mos likely drakes [​IMG] And I no I have a mallard drake but only one female. So will it be ok or do I have to get more females? I got them all in a straight run.

    I have been told it's best to have at least three females for each drake, because the females can get hurt from too much breeding. Also, drakes can start fighting. It depends on the particular ducks.
