    Hi everyone,

    I am new to keeping mandarins and I will have some next spring that will start mating (hopefully) but my question is, I have two hens and one drake mandarin, will the drake mate with both hens or will he only mate with one since I know that they're know for pairing?

    Thanks!!!

    Hi I thought about getting some mandarins but waterfowl seem to be a little harder than land fowl.
    I will do some research and let you know.

    it all depends on the Drake but generally he will mate with both ducks.
