I've been keeping my 5 week old pekins in seperate areas seperated by chicken wire from the two adult pekins (1 year olds) - one male, one female. SO today I thought I'd put the adult female with the 5week olds for a bit - sort of introduction time! Well, it's my 5-week old females that kept running over and "poking" my sweet Sarah causing her much distress. After 1/2 hour of this - I seperated them again. SIlly me - I thought the older female would cause my youngsters distress - not the other way around - never thought the ducklings would "rule"!
