    I gave my three males away (told they are mallards) as I found them attacking the chicken that raised them. My hope at the beginning was for only females, as I only wanted the eggs. The 5 females are [​IMG]ier now too.

    That "attacking" was probably their attempts at mating... but I, too, find that the flock is more peaceful with only ducks [​IMG]

    We are much more peaceful now with female ducks, hens, and one little bitty rooster (Bantam).
