    If you are getting ducklings you will need to slowly let them meet. You might want to put the ducklings in a little play pen of some sort so they cannot have contact but can just see each other. Ducks are very social so I would think they will be fine with new ducklings you will just need to take it slow. Good Luck!!!!!

    New ducklings also need to be brooded.

    I recommend that once the ducklings are grown, lock the ducklings and your duck up together at night in a cage or a wooden box, whatever you choose to do. This is what I’ve done every time I introduce my ducks to new ducks, which I’ve done several times. No matter the way you choose to introduce your ducks to eachother, make sure you check them for injuries.
