    I'm getting a mallard drake for Quacker. She is reasonable around my medium sized parrots and really could use a friend. What I need to know is can this 2 1/2 pound drake mate with Quacker? Will he be capable of hurting her or overbreed her since she is the only female or can she just throw him off since she is at least 6 pounds and can get to 8? I can't have a regular duck because of the noise and I want to introduce a baby while she is still young and open minded.
