    Hi a few months ago I got a little pekin duckling and he has grown up into a nice pekin drake. he is very friendly and loves to be around people, but he is all alone in his pen and i want to get him another duck friend. I do not have alot of experiance with ducks. I am haveing problem making this choice. i know someone right now with ancona and welsh harlequin hens for sale. i am wondering which one is better breed I looked them both up and love both breeds and i cant decide between them... also can you cross breed ducks i think you can just want to be sure and if so which one would make better babies with a pekin drake...
    thanks so much i am so excited to finally get a friend for my duck.
    thanks! [​IMG]

    Either one will be fine especially if their main purpose is pets. You can cross breed ducks but then you have to deal with finding all of the offspring a new home.
