    Hi there,

    Just thought I would introduce myself. I am from the UK and new to keeping ducks. I have three indian runners and one call duck.
    I got them from a local breeder and the idea was to get three females and one male. The male one being the call duck, however it seems that one of the females is a male after all!:/
    They have grown up together so I hope they will get along.
    Is it a good idea to get another female?

    Xx

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but I have to admit that ducklings are the ultimate in cute. Definitely post on the duck link provided by Yorkshire coop and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your ducks.
