I have a male mallard and a male pekin (both are about 5 months old) and two chickens(both hens about the same age). Does anyone have any advice about this situation? They are backyard pets. They have been friendly and happy with the chickens, but I'm afraid that they may be at that age where they should... be with some other ducks. I have never kept ducks or chickens, so I'm new to both situations and just want what is best for them. I would love to have more hens someday, but want to make sure I do my research and a lot of preparation before I do so. I don't have any interest in keeping more ducks, however. They are wonderful pets and a lot of fun, but are large and pretty messy. If I had a larger yard or a pond, I would LOVE IT, but more ducks don't fit into my situation right now. Thanks in advance!
