    I currently have three khaki campbells, two males and one female. They aren't fully mature yet. I don't want any of them to kill each other, so would adding a second female prevent fighting in the future?

    I have two Drakes and two females and I am having awful trouble. I have had to seperate them until I get atleast another 4 females. They tend to gang up on one particular female. It's not very nice to witness! :( I suggest getting a few more females or selling one Drake. x

    I agree with Jessica u shouldn't have a ratio 1 to 1 unless they are in couples separted in different pens

    Ok, I guess I just have to figure out if I'm getting rid of a drake or getting more females. Thanks for the help.

    I have had this problem too.. It's really hard especially when the Drake's are pets. Good luck!

    Just keep in mind that even if you get rid of one male you should still think about add more females. 1:1 isn't usually a good ratio.

    I was thinking of trading my male with a friend's female.
