My friend is having family health issues so she asked me to take her very small flock of ducks for her because they were being naughty in her absence. I have 10 of my own (one being a drake) and I took on her 4 (one also being a drake) These ducks were raised together (born last June), so they are OK to put together. So after a day of looking at each other through fences we put them together. They did surprisingly well!!! I knew the drakes would fight for dominance and they did...but at a very small physical level ....but one way they fought was for dominance of the hens. One hen in particular was their target... this poor hen was over bred. I did not "see" (aka understand the extent of) what was really going on, after 2 days of this she came up lame. I have her cooped up at night in the duck house with the rest of the flock, but in a crate. She goes out in the pen ALL day by herself (or if I can outsmart a hen she will get a pen mate for the day) so she can heal. So, it has been almost a week of her being separated from the drakes and yesterday she was no longer limping AT ALL. My question is: How long would you keep her separated to make sure she is strong enough (healed enough) to not be re-injured?
