    I currently have 12 ducks. 2 female khaki campbell 4 male khaki campbell, 5 peckin males and 1 peckin female. I was reading through and didn't find anything on how to thin them out. I tried putting some males in our pond which is in another area of the yard from the duck pen we currently have, but they kept coming down to the fence area where they use to be housed. Any ideas on how to get them to stay in the pond area where they have a lot of foliage, shade and all the water they could want? we want to keep them around just not all around the few females have for eggs.

    They have raging hormones and will ALWAYS find their way to the females. They ain't stupid. ;)

    Sell them or eat them.
