I have some Magpie ducklings but am thinking of getting one or two more to keep them company. I could get two more magpies, but they'd be at least three weeks younger than my pair -would that be too tough on them? And if I can't get Magpies I was thinking of Pekins -would they be okay together? And as far as breeding goes, is Pekin x Magpie a good or bad thing? I realize it would eliminate the pure bloodlines, but are there any other concerns (assuming they set and hatch, of course). I'm sorry for all the questions! I just had my heart set on a Magpie trio but just lost my male, and my remaining girls just seem so lonely. Am I anthropomorphosizing too much?
