I need some help with how to get my Pilgrim geese and grown Pekin duck to accept the ducklings we are trying to add to the group. The ducklings are partially feathered and big enough to be outside now. They are in a separate pen inside the goose area and have been there for about a week. I was hoping the geese would want to adopt them...but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. Both ganders and the goose charge them and chase them whenever we let them out to see how they do together. I'm worried if we just leave them out the geese will kill them. I want to get the ducklings out of that separate pen as they will soon be outgrowing it. The goal is for them to be able to live together peacefully. The geese and the Pekin duck were together since they were babies by the way. Also, the Pekin duck has paired up with my goose! Which is annoying but harmless I suppose as the ganders still mate with her. Hopefully one of the 3 pekin ducklings will be a female so the pekin drake can move on to his own species lol. *Another question and issue. One of the pekin ducklings seems to have a birth defect in the leg. I looks like it is out of place at the joint or something. It hobbles around and has to stop and rest frequently. It doesn't swim that well either. It eats, drinks, bathes, etc normally. I'm worried about what to do with it. Any ideas or suggestions?
