    I would recommend posting this in the Ducks section of the forum, as this section is for determining the breed and gender of birds. However, I wouldn't put ducklings back in with adult ducks (other than their mother, if they have one) until they were fully feathered and at least 1/4-1/2 the size of the adults. Otherwise, they might get picked on or kept away from the feed by the mature, larger ducks.
