    Quote:If they are just now getting their feathers I'd say they are too young to be with the adults. Put them in a separate pen or something where they can all see each other but the adults can't get to them, then hopefully when your youngsters get old enough 6 weeks or more they can all be let out together. Male ducks will kill baby ducklings.
