    a little hard to tell in these pics but in the second pic the big one looks male while the small one looks female. In the third pic, the one to the right looks like hen. Hard to tell on the others

    With your peachicks panacur (safeguard) is a excellent wormer. Having only 3 it would be easy to dose individually at .5 mL (1/2 a milliliter) for three days. Then follow up with the same dosing in 10 days.

    Looks like two males and one hen. But the pics don't show them clearly.

    If this is 2 males to 1 female is that alright cause i know with chickens they will over mate the femlae is the same true here? And when can i let them free range, we have chickens across the farm that free range, but i dont think the chickens will be nice, as in they will chase them around if by them, they still chase the ducks a little and the ducks are same size as chickens!!
