When we had our family chat last night my hubby was much more enthusiastic about getting Mallards than some of the other breeds we were looking at, though he did like Cayugas as well. So here's our questions: Can you keep Mallards, Cayugas, Swedish, and Welsh Harlequin together? We didn't know if their smaller size was a problem? If it is will they do ok with just 1 or 2 other larger breeds and not three? (if we need to limit our choices they'd be mallard and cayuga at least) If we get Mallards only is 1 drake enough to go with 5 or more females? Or do they need to be kept in pairs like they'd do in the wild? Are Mallards good for child kept flocks? These are for our kids, though we'll be helping as well. Anything else we should know? The breed descriptions i've got are lacking in the details of their keeping. Thanks!
