I wound up with 3 male white and fawn runner ducks. I do not want to give them up, but they very much want to mate. Saw one duck trying to mate with my dog's toy and then another one hopped on to that duck. It was kinda sad and funny at the same time. They try to mate with my dogs also, yuck! So we got 4 more ducks and now only 2 females. Drakes have not been bothering the females, probably still too young. Just want to know if they will eventually settle down with this attempting mating thing. I am very much worried about the 5 males 2 females ratio but do not want to rehome, but so far the drakes are more interested in the dogs, which are males. Afraid my dogs will eventually snap and hurt a duck, but so far they have been very patient. I also want the ducks to be able to free range on our property and do not want to have to keep them in their run at all times, but if I have to separate I will. Oh, and they don't bother the chickens, just the dogs and dog toys. And one drake likes to bite my foot when I am wearing sandals, it hurts! They are out of control! Is there a way I can keep 5 males and 2 females? I don't want more ducks, as they are very messy. Is rehoming my only choice for a more peaceful home?
