Ducks can sometimes astonish us with how they do not get along.
For their safety, I would separate. And I know, this is a big pain in the neck. But ducklings can hurt each other, drakes can really do some serious harm, and even confused mama ducks can be trouble. So, take note of how it's going and divide them up.
The consolation I can offer is - it's temporary - the ducklings will grow up, everyone can be reintroduced. And I feel it's better to go through this challenge protecting everyone than to deal with the heartbreak of injury and death.
