So, the hatchery... where I live... didn't send me the right amount of ducks, I know right?

So I called yadada, and they said they could only send one down a week and a half after I got my first batch. so I was like alright ok cool.

Anyways, tomorrow morning I go pick up my pekin duckling, I am just curious.. I have 2 goslings and 5 pekins already, will they bully around the new comer? Should I keep an eye on him?

Thanks!

I'd be tempted to keep it by itself in an adjacent pen until it is at least a week old. At this point in the game especially with two goslings in the mix it is very likely to get trampled as well as picked on.

Okay thanks for the reply.

Yeah the goslings are large and seem careless xD Walking over everything including me! haha
