I have 2 female ducklings. I have 3 famale adult ducks and 1 adult drake. The ducklings are almost as big as the adult females, but are a slightly smaller breed and will never be quite the same size. Currently the ducklings are housed next to the duck run. Everyone can see and hear each other. I want to move them in with the adult ducks but I am concerned about the drake. He is somewhat obsessed with the ducklings and still shows aggression towards them. I am debating pulling out the drake and housing all the females together and letting them integrate with each other and then adding the drake back in later. I thought this might be a better use of space and start the 2 groups mingling. Will separating the drake and then adding him back later just create more/different problems with flock dynamics? Is it better to keep the old birds and young birds separate longer or better to separate the drake from the females? I was thinking/hoping once fall rolls around and hormones aren't so high they could all live together. Thoughts? How would you or have you divided up your flock? Does drake jail make things better or worse?
