    Hi I'm new to the duck world! I am looking to get 2 ducks and was wondering if I got a pekin and a Cayuga if they will get along together? Also what is peoples opinions on friendliest breeds?

    They should get along just fine. They're similar sized though the pekin will get a little bigger. I find both of them are friendly, but I've never had another breed so can't say if there's any 'friendlier' ones out there.

    Pekins are generally docile, calm, friendly, and easy-going. Cayugas are docile, quiet, and easy-going. There are always exceptions but I'd be greatly surprised if two ducks raised together suddenly fight.

    I'm looking to get one of each! I'm glad it sounds like they will make a good pair!
