    Based West Sussex, England.

    We have a small flock of ducks and recently some of our females died. This has left us with an uneven balance of males to females (3 drakes, 5 females). 4 of our females are rescues and are very small compared to our giant pekin drakes. As we all know duck mating is aggressive but the boys are really savaging our rescue girls (to the point of making them bleed). Due to this I think we will have to rehome two of our drakes. This makes me incredibly sad and Im unsure how to go about it. I don't want them to become someones dinner!

    Does anyone know of anyone looking for pekin males? Or how I would go about finding a good rehome for them?

    All advice welcome. Thanks in advance!

    If can’t find someone to take them can surrender them quickly to area shelters that take ducks.

    I'd seperate them now, before anyone gets hurt.

    Thanks All!

    I managed to find a beautiful sanctuary for the boys to go and live. Its got a large lake so I think they'll be very happy there together :)
