I have three large buff orpington ducks. I believe one is a male and one the other two are females. The larges one which i believe is a drake has almost like a white collar around his neck. They are around three months old and fully feathered My questions are : Do I need to clip their wings? when can I let them free range( we have a pond)? I am worried about hawks and other predators how do i keep them safe Id hate to see them in the run all day. Can I keep a rooster with them to keep them safe (Id like to get a younger one and socialize it well I have a young son who I don't want to get hurt if the rooster is nasty) assuming I can buy one younger and raise it with the ducks?
