    Thanks...I was just reading some things on rir's....people scare me with their tales of aggressiveness...so far all are getting along well.They don't even pick on my browns that are a week younger.No meanness so far to humans either.They are even curious about my six cats![​IMG] Hope that turns out well...it's the three mallards I have that are 3 weeks old that pick on them!At first it was the other way around...now the ducklings are bigger...so...lol...I just monitor things and keep them in check.So far,so good.I wish I'd known earlier how much fun these little birds can be!!
