I have three male ducks and 5 females. Is that ratio alright or not?
By the general rule of thumb yes, that is too many males. Whether or not it will work out will depend on your flock. You can either add a few females or just keep an eye on them. Look for signs of excessive mating. Be especially wary if they have water to swim in because an over bred female could be drowned.
I have 7 ducks (3 kaki campells and 4 crested) there is 3 females and 4 males and I don't have a problem they very rarely do anything sexual they live pretty calmly!. the only time I notice eny mateing is in spring and summer and as cosbackyard said I did tho have to drain my pools a bit because they do get frisky in the water!! i hope this was helpful!! but it all depends on your ducks really i hope they work out!
