    Newbie here :)

    I got 7 pekins a week ago. I think they are about 3 weeks old now. They have nearly doubled size in only 1 week. They are a handful, but I just love them!

    I wanted Khaki Campbells due to the egg production, but I happened upon these Pekins for only $1/each at TSC.

    I still want Khaki Campbells, but I want to make sure both will cohabilitate in harmony. Can pretty much all breeds of waterfowl be together? Thanks!

    go by the duck weight classes preferably the light weight and bantam class should be with the heavy weight class during breeding season

    but pekins and khakis are prefectly fine together they should get along perfect.

    That makes sense. I figured they would be ok, especially if I get the KC soon and once a good size move them so they grow up with the Pekins. Thanks!

    I am new to the duck game. Lol I have 3 ducks. 1 female and 2 males. My female is running away from my drake. I am sure he is hurting her. What should I do?

    okay well your ratio is wrong your supposed to have 2 to 3 ducks for each male okay

    he is ivermateing your female and she is being hurt bye overly mateing basicly you need more females or the problem will not be fixed and keep happening again and again and again every breeding season.

    Thank you. My other male just sits back and watches. I am going to start looking for another female. For now I am going to keep them seperated. [​IMG]
