    Hello gang!
    I have had 2 males ducks for over a year now,,they were suppose to be male and female,but turned out different!
    So I was tired of seeing them destroy eachother by pulling out eachothers feathers and chasing around like crazy! They needed females,,
    so I now have a 2 month old and 3 month old (females) rouens. I have them separated and can see eachother,,but I don't want them
    together yet,,I'm afraid of the males hurting them. When is a good age to let them together? I am looking forward to them having the same living
    quarters! thanks

    I would not put them together yet.

    The males will start bereeding them as soon as you put them together. I'd wat a bit longer until the babies grow up, because the adult males are going to hurt the babies.
