    I have six Khaki Campbells and they have just reached that age! Three are drakes and three are ducks.

    1. Will they always exhibit this aggressive behavior?

    2. Should I consider finding another home for two of the drakes?

    3. Assuming it is recommended to find a home for two of the drakes, will they get along if no duck is present?

    Thank you very much,
    Eric

    Drakes gang breeding hens are frequently a cause of injury or death - when breeding in water multiple drakes can readily drown a duck. If they were mine, I would immediately separate out two of the drakes and find them a new home. They may or may not get along without any ducks present. Good luck in resolving this.
