Hi, I have 7 9 week old ducklings who I hatched together and they have never been apart. We have figured out that we have 3 drakes and 4 hens. Someone recently posted that they have a lone duck after its buddy passed away (It is a 7 month old female). Because I know I will eventually need to rehome the drakes I offered her one drake and one hen. I’m worried though, since these babies have been together their whole lives, how hard on them will this be and how will it affect the other 5 who are left with me? I’m assuming I will still at some point have to rehome another of my drakes and sadly have to give up another female just to feel better about someone from their clutch going with them, but man this is hard. And how do you pick who to let go? They all come up and talk to me and bob their heads up and down as soon as I go outside, my drakes usually being first.
