    I do know that male ducks get along with out female ducks but I want to get straight run ducks and expecting 50/50 and I want to split them but I'm worried if they see each other the males still will fight. Any help would be amazing thanks.:)

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about ducks (although I've had a few), but definitely post your question on our Duck section in Other BackYard Poultry under the Forum at the top of the page and take advantage of our duck experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Alright [​IMG] great to have you joining the BYC flock [​IMG]





    BYC has a very useful Learning Center [​IMG]





    I have had over 18 male's raised for Meat in the yard and very little fighting took place the real problem is when females are introduced during the spring time matting season but the same could be said for all other two legged animals [​IMG]




    Please enjoy your time here at BYC and hope to see you around the Trends [​IMG]

    I don't know much about ducks either, so I believe the "Duck thread," is the best place for advice.
