Seven months or so ago I got a pair of beautiful muscovy hens, who grey up very happy and healthy and loving people. Unfortunately for reasons we don't understand, someone broke into our enclosed yard and stole one of our babies :(
It's been a few weeks and we've done everything we can to find her, but unfortunately it was starting to look like she wasn't going to come up, and our other duck was really lonely being by herself all the time of course so we got another duck.
We tried to find an adult duck but unfortunately we couldn't and a few days ago adopted a found pekin ducking instead. This little baby is only 5 days old, and has imprinted on us. We have tentatively and under very close supervision let our muscovy have a look at her, and our muscovy seems to get very overexcited. She doesn't appear to be aggressive towards the duckling but her preening pecks are a bit much for the little one and we're worried she will suddenly become aggressive.
What's the best way to nurture this relationship so they will be friends and live together when the little one is big enough to live outside?
