Not always. Depends on the size of the enclosure and the demeanor of the birds. Also when raised together they tend to get along better

I sure hope not.


I am raising some girlfriends for my 2 Pekin drakes now. My 3 little Mallard ducks are so small, and they have 2 Mallard suitors already.

I don't think the size difference is going to matter, however one drake to ten ducks is (in my experience) the preferred ration of male to female. I have had drakes rape and drown the females to death when there were not enough girls to go around.


Not saying it is going to happen, but keep an eye open for that sort of thing.

o GOODNESS. I will keep watch they dot abuse her. The pekins were a "gift" of sorts. They didnt make weight at the local fair so we brough them home.Never crosed my mind about Daisy. She can always fly to get away I guess.

Thanks Everyone
