    Alright, here’s the deal. I need to pick out maximum of 4 more female ducks. I currently have 3 males and 3 females, I don’t want to have to give away 2 males so I’m deciding on getting more females.
    My males breeds:
    2 Pekins and Cayuga.
    My females: 2 Pekins and a blue Swedish.

    I need a breed that is big enough for a Pekin male to be able to mate with. Also is 2 females a good enough amount? My males are very gentle towards my females. I’m not willing to get like 6. I guess I’m willing to give up ONE. Male. That’s all though. But I won’t give him up if I have to.
    Thanks, fluffy.

    Fluff... I’ll be the first one to be honest with you... it’s best to just rehome the extra males. A Pekin male (Unless I had Pekin females) would be the last thing I’d keep. :th

    But; if you must get more females instead - just get more Pekin hens.

    Yeah, I understand. I do have Pekin hens, I'll just get more to keep the pressure off of the blue swedish.:hmm
