when to reintroduce a brooding duckling back to its mama

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Our two female Blue Swedidh Ducks hatched four ducklings between them. We let the ducklings stay secluded with the moms for three dsys. We provided water and mixed flock starter for the babes but the moms would get into the feeders and dump them. Three of the ducklings died. We took the fourth one up to the house to brood for safe measure. We know how to brood the duckling however we do t know when and how to return our brooded little one to its mother and that flock of 4- all Blue Swedish, three females and one drake. Any suggestions?

I think your question can best be served on the "Duck thread,"  If you put that in the search box, it will come up.   Welcome to Backyard chickens.

I agree with drumstick diva...sounds like a good question for the duck forum. Hope your remaining duckling gets along fine.

I alway wait to introduce new duck to my flock till they are 8 weeks old same as my chickens. Even if they are from my flock. I haven't let my duck sit on eggs for a while I incubate the eggs I get.
