We have an opportunity to bring on 5 new Pekin ducks into our existing flock of 5 ducks/2 drakes. Our current ducks are Ancona and Khaki Campbell. They are about 16 wks old. Super sweet. My question is, are ducks accepting of new "family" members or do they tend to be like chickens and get mean?
We had one of our Ancona's get attacked by a raccoon and we had her in the house for well over a month. We just re-introduced her to the flock and they were so sweet and welcoming. Our big drake was so sweet to show her the ropes. I don't know if they did this because they had known her previously or are they just not mean like chickens?
