Isn't there a support group somewhere? I started with 2 very nice Runner drakes last August. Just for decoration and bug control, you understand. One went out to dinner with a racoon and the other started hanging around with 3 pullets. Definitely an identity crisis so I went to the breeder and asked for another drake. No way - you want more ducks you have to take a pair. So I did. But 2 drakes, one duck, no good. Original drake still thought he was a chicken and showed those girls (the chickens) what roosters do. This spring I finally got another duck. Pretty fawn girl. But then there was a poultry swap a couple of weeks ago. I got 3 more, 2 neat collared fawns and a light fawn with an amazing army-green bill. Oops, the green-billed turned out to be a drake. Don't need more drakes so I got in touch with the previous owner and she said she's be happy to trade back. On Sunday I caught the drake, she called to say she had a duck ready for me. Then she said the drake would be going into the pot. Oh. So, of course I kept Mr Greenbill. Current count? 3 drakes, 5 ducks, and 1 just hatched. I guess this isn't the right place for a support group though, is it? More like a bunch of enablers.
