    If you just have males and no females they will get along great!

    I had 2 pekin drakes and they got along alright but when spring came, all they did was try to mate eachother and all of us. Not my idea of fun.

    Muscovy ducks don't quack. They just make soft trilling, cooing noises. Believe me, the mallard derived drakes may not quack but mine were pretty noisy anyway.

    The girls don't have the large carnicles like the drakes do. And they are very quiet. see this is an adult female Muscovy [​IMG]

    tee hee when I was a kid I didnt know what they were we saw them on the pond at the camping place we went to in FL and we called them ugly ducks... hehe.... they arent really, atleast not the girls and some of the boys are pretty too with Elvis hair haha. But my grandpa wont let me get them either, and honestly I dont want tohave to worry about accidently hatching mules so I just stick to one lineage of duck lol. They are cute though especially the girls!
