    their gonna be your ducks so you gotta like them too. if your wanting egg production id just get all welsh but if your just want pretty pets that lay decent get whatever breed or breeds you like best as you have to care for them and love them

    What breeds do you like? I think welsh harlequins are pretty along with cayugas and magpies. But that is my personal preference.

    Get both then. But it is usually better to not get a larger male than your females.

    You are splitting hairs at this point. That is completely up to you.
