My mother has a ever fluctuating flock of ducks that she got from McMurry Hatchery a year ago and they are mean to any duck that looks different! The flock is mostly Pekins, 3 ducks-1 drake, a Khaki Campbell (?), and a Cayuga duck (that was mine). Back before the winter and the minx, she had a Crested called Einstein that the rest of the flock isolated and picked on, even though she grew up with them. It was so bad I had to separate her and nurse her back to health. However, the Cayugas I introduced ended to her flock did fine after a few weeks..... Today, she tried to introduce two ducks 4-5wks (one probably a special needs Crested drake) and a Cayuga mix, and during family dinner my brother had to intervene because the Pekins ganged up on the poor crested! They pinned him down and everything. The Cayuga baby loves the Crested because they were raised together, but it gets caught in the middle when the Pekins attack. I don't know if they will ever both be able to be in the big pen because I am afraid the will seriously get hurt. However, they can't stay in the small pen forever since three newly hatched babies will need to go in there in a couple weeks. What do I do? My flock has always been fairly good with "outsiders", within a few days they are accepted. But I am going to be breeding next year and already have an oddball. Is there anything I can do to help them? What is going to happen when her other ducklings are old enough to be in the big pen? Has anyone else had this problem? Is it a breed thing? Help?!
