Frequently Asked Questions

How many male ducks should I keep, and will they fight like roosters?

With ducks, problems arise when you have too many males. They can become aggressive sexually and harm weaker females. For small flocks of 10 or less ducks, you can keep pairs. For larger flocks of over 10 ducks, the ratio should be one male for every three to five females. We recommend larger areas for larger flocks.

Generally, ducks and geese do not prolong the pecking order scuffle as long as chickens tend to.
