I am new here but have been using BYC threads for a few years to help answer questions I have had about my chickens. I am looking for some advise about the best way to integrate my ducks who are all Pekin. I have a 3 year old Drake who is currently by himself; a 8 week old drake and 8 week old female who are together; and 5 three week old female ducklings who are together. The babies will need to move out of the house soon (within a week or two) and I am not sure if I should put the two older ducklings with the 3 year old and leave the babies separated until they are older, or should I put babies with the older ducklings and then put them all together when babies are big enough? I could also add a pen for the 8 week olds and keep everyone separate until babies are old enough just don’t know if that will be necessary.
