    Later this week I'm buying two more drakes to bring home. The problem is, my flock currently consists of only one 2 year-old drake (his last buddies disappeared). He's free-range but comes home for daily fresh food and water. We don't have a pen or cage or anything. I don't want him to be alone, so I was hoping that the two I'm getting will be his new companions, but I haven't got a clue on how I may introduce them. All suggestions are gladly welcome!

    You need cages,shouldn’t have animals like this just running around.

    You may need to quarantine them so they don’t get each others sick,then you also have the chance of th newbies running away without adapting to the area first.
