    I am planning on going to the local poultry show/swap meet in 2 weeks. I dunno what i might find or fall in love with and have to have. If i find an awesome duck, and it happens to be a drake, can 2 drakes cohabitate if the new duck i just got is a drake?

    Yeah they will be fine...your existing drake will fight a bit and show the new one whos boss and then they should be fine.

    I had to sell off one of my two drakes because even though they each had 3-4 females, they fought constantly and were tearing feathers off of each other, keeping one another from the feed etc.

    I hope you fare better than I did if you do get a drake! [​IMG]

    Make sure to quarantine any animals you bring back; you don't want to kill off your entire flock just because one bird had the sniffles.
