Okay....right now they are all free range...sort of...I let the three adults...two drakes one hen wander the world as they wish...of course I put them up at night.....I put the four younger hens in a fenced in garden...so they are separated. At night they are in separate pens....soon though when the snow is three to four feet high they won't be as free range as they might like.....I guess what I am asking is once the hens ,reach the right age will they be more "willing" to go along with the drake advances (for a lack of a better term). Sorry I really thought it would be a little easier getting them to mix together....if the dog hadn't killed three earlier I probably would be fine right now.
good night I'm going soon too
Short answer, yes... they will be more receptive to they boys usually right before they start laying, at least with all the ones I've seen... but also, drakes seem to lose their brains when they can reach new ducks... best to wait til the teeny boppers are mature... and I would put the older duck with them first, then add the drakes... imo...
Okay...thanks...that's kinda the slow approach I've been taking....take care ...talk later.... Phil
I want to see the results as well!
I just discussed them with a friend, she's really good with genetics... said he *should be* carrying 1 silver and 1 gold gene, so chicks *should be* 50/50 Silver and Gold Duckwing...

I saw that the ape trend is become a real issue here!
Sorry for commenting on this so long after the fact, but I went to bed early last night, wiped out, and I'm playing catchup, AGAIN.
Regarding the "4 hour" thing, believe me when I tell you that if that ever happened to me, the LAST person I'd call would be the doctor; I'd go through my old "little black book" cover to cover before I did anything
