    I have nine ducks and "Sweetness" who I thought was a hen turned out to be a drake. I have been trying to find a home for at least one of my drakes as three drakes and 6 hens is not working out too well. Anyone in Alaska want a blue runner drake??? He is a handsome fellow very upright. He is three or four years old.

    I have a similar issue.
    4 drakes, 2 hens.
    Up until recently it had not been an issue.
    I know it's hard to rehome drakes, so I may be keeping my boys and rehoming the girls.
    I hate to give them up. :(

    I love my hens. They aren't going anywhere. I might have to put them in different pens.

    I have 3 drakes and 10 ducks and I have to keep my drakes separate from each other with their own set of girls, if not they will fight. It's just what drakes do.
