ok then. I do not want to breed siblings. which of course both pairings are. how do you suggest i manage this? also, my 14 months old drake dulled out this spring. he lost his little black tail curls and his green sheen on his head. Is he going to stay this way?
I find sometimes when adding another group of ducks to an existing one, even adding a lone duck, they don't always bond with each other. All of my ducks intermingle but have their definite mini flocks, some preferring to be loners.
