    I bought 1 day old Blue Indian Runner Ducks on April 30th. Now that we are into August, I see that I have 8 drakes and only 2 hens. I assume that this is not a good mix and unless I want to keep them separate, I will need to sell a few. So my question is, do I keep 8 drakes and get rid of the hens or do I keep 2 hens and a drake and get rid of the other 7? If I get rid of the 2 hens, will the drakes get along fine?

    One other question, what price should I ask for the ducks that I decide to sell?

    Thanks,
    Kathy

    You could sell the hens and just keep the drakes if they are just pets, Drake flocks usually get along fine.
