We have 2 Buff Orpington ducks, PJ and Penny. I had a chicken go broody so I just stuck a duck egg under her for grins. It hatched out right in the middle of the coldest weather we'd had in west central Florida, so we put it in our brooder. It's now 3 weeks old and starting to get feathers. I brought it out to the duck pen to see how PJ and Penny would react to it. PJ attacked it and made sure it did not go near Penny. I'm guessing it must be a drake. The problem is, what to do when it's time to put it outside. Will PJ attack it until it dies or eventually leave it alone? Will I have to separate it or will it ever be accepted by its parents? My DH says he's not building another pen for one duck. Gee, I wonder if a duck can be house broken? It seems to prefer being with my Cocker Spaniel than with other birds. Hm.
