Can You Keep All Drakes Together?

I am often asked if you can keep all drakes together. My answer to this  would be no if you are just keeping drakes unless they are separated from each other.

If you are going to keep drakes then you will need to get some ducks to satisfy their breeding urges. At least 2 ducks per drake but if you have enough space I would say between 4-6 ducks per drake is more suitable.

I only have one drake so don’t have experience of drakes not getting on.

You might find that if they have grown up together and if they have enough ducks to satisfy them, then they may get on. However one of my forum members, Campbell ridge is having to sell one of her drakes as the adult drake is finding the new drake a threat and the adult one, infact the parent of the younger drake is becoming aggressive towards the young drake, so in this instance even a related drake doesn’t get on.

If you onl;y have drakes and have the room I would suggest getting some ducks to go with each drake and seeing what happens and then if the drakes do not get on then you may have to sell some of the drakes.
