    I have heard only one side. I only clip one side of my quail but both on my mallards. Never had a problem with either

    So what are these ducks? I have a feeling they are a mix. The female lays an egg a day but is not broody. My apologies for the quality of the picture. The male with the white ring has a green head and the other one a brown head.[​IMG]

    The one with brown head would be khaki campbell and the other 2 look like rouens.

    I have a question, I have one malard male and I get worried about him being lonely. He grew up alone so he seems content with getting all his attention from people, but lately he seems kinda lonely I know part of it is because its mating season. Im just wondering if two males could get along together, I dont want to bring home a female and end up with a whole flock plus id be worried about how rough he'd be with her. Any advice? He's spoiled rotten and he loves it, he lives inside and he hates goung outside for longer than a few minutes.

    I agree with the poster above about just taking the eggs. It's not like with dogs or cats where you end up with litters...just take their eggs every few days and you'll be fine. That being said, before I got my girls last year I only had two boys for about a year and they got along great. In fact, they probably scuffle more now that there are girls around.
