Ask Seth: Pet Pekin Ducks need Companions?

I have a 3-year old male Pekin duck as a pet. He is the only duck that we have. He is very well taken care of (food, water, shelter). Because nobody is home all day, I am wondering if we should get him a companion duck. He is a big boy. Do you think he would accept this new companion duck, or is he set in his ways and it would not be a good idea? I think of him as my child, so I am afraid he may be lonely. He has always been by himself, but I'm wondering if maybe a companion would be good for him. What do you suggest? read more
