So I have a flock of 4 jumbo pekin (2 hens/2 drakes) and a flock of 15 Welsh Harlequins. The 2 pekin drakes and one of the hens will be meat birds shortly and the main flock will consist of WH (with the remaining pekin joining them because she has a really funny personality and she turned out to be a white layer). Its hard to tell the genders of the WH as they are only 6 weeks old but there are about 5 or 6 of them that are DEFINITELY female. which is great but that also means that I have 9-10 drakes lol. My question is at which point do I really have to be careful about them being together and mating? I know it'll be a while before there are any eggs but maybe the boys start younger? Ill have to post some pictures when I get home to see what ya'll think on the ratio, there's too many to count quacks and know where they came from.
