I have 13 ducks in total - 4 boys and 9 girls. I still have the Aylesbury ducklings to add when they are old enough but not keeping any boys. I am also going to rehome the 2 Kakhi Campbell Drakes as they are so so randy. A few of the girls necks are getting bald!

I had to rehome all but one drake.  I only took 3 girls and a drake with me when I moved and rehomed all the others.  I think they are all quite happy now.
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

yes, the wee black duck has a bald head, as she is so small. Not an easy life! I'll consider my options...:&>

It's funny, 9 of my ducks enjoy the free range life but 4 of the ones I hatched last year just refuse to leave their pen. So, the 9 are free to roam from around 7am till about 7pm. However, the second they go back into their pen the Kakhi Campbell Drakes pounce on any of the girls they can get on. I wish these 4 would also roam freely as the others have a great life now and I will also need to find a home for these 2 horny boys.
