I have 3 mallard drakes that are 12 weeks old. I have raised them from eggs and they seem happiest when we are together as a quartet. I am reading about how drakes start getting mean so you need to exert authority over them. I have also read that it's all honky dory if it's a bachelor group. These guys are mostly house ducks; they get outside time but I shuffle them inside a dog carrier at night and a lot of times they are in diapers roaming the house and nibbling at me. They don't like to be too far from me. These are my first ducks. What do you think is going to happen? I am hoping for a situation where we are 3, ahem, I mean, 4 drakes just hanging out. Do you think they will become aggressive either thinking me as a female to mate with, or a rival male to do battle with? If I do the whole dominance thing, holding them down, fake mounting them, etc, will they ever be like they are now? Lap ducks that ticklingly nibble at my fingers and groom my hair while we watch tv and nap on the couch?
