Hello,

New to raising ducks. I have 4 Pekins, 3 which are proving to be drakes. I am planning on putting the extra males in the freezer. My question is can I have a pair of Pekins or will the female be over mated by the drake?

Thank you!
Angie

Hi. There isn't an easy answer. It depends on the drake. Some drakes are okay with a single female, some aren't. If you don't want more females, then you can wait to see how he is. If you wanted to have 4 ducks, you can look for 2 more females, either adults or sexed juveniles.

Nice to see that you have a plan for the extra boys.
