    Hi, at my school we have 9 ducklings, 8males, 1 female, my teacher thought that the ducks would just decide that one male gets to be with the female but the others would just accept it and move on, is this true? Or will the males fight over the female?

    They would fight over her, they wouldnt fight if there wasnt a female present tho XD She would get trampled and bred to death [​IMG]

    The drakes might not fight but they won't pair up, either. They will line up and take turns mating the duck
