    I'm interested in Black Swedes or Cayugas. I really like Pekins but I hear they are loud and I am looking for a quiet breed other than a Muscovy. Any suggestions?

    Pets, I want a quieter breed so they don't bother the neighbors.

    If you just want pets then why not try keeping just males? Then you wouldn't have to worry about the noise females make.

    I thought I wasn't supposed to keep two males together cause of fighting. Was that not true? If I could keep two males to reduce noise, I definitely would!

    My first two ducks were both drakes. I kept them both together for over 4 years without any females. They got along fine and rarely fought.
