Hi there, I apologize if this question has already been answered elsewhere, but I couldn't seem to find it. I've just joined, though I have lurked this website constantly for advice and opinions all through my first experience with my very own first flock. I have a Muscovy drake who is a little over a year old. I have had him since he was a duckling. His brother was unfortunately killed about six months ago by a roaming dog that got on to our property. My drake has never known another duck. We got a Muscovy hen this weekend who is around his age. She is in her own duck coop for now to ensure she is healthy and to allow her to get used to the routine at our home. Our duck coop is about five feet tall and has separate doors with dividers between doors that can be removed and replaced as needed, so it can be two small coops or one large one. I currently have the divider up between our new hen and our drake. Does anyone have any advice about how long I should wait to take the divider away so she and the drake can actually interact and share the coop? I don't want him to run her ragged and stress her by being overly excited and amorous. I plan on keeping the hen cooped for about a month so she will be more likely to stick around, and letting our drake out daily to free range as usual.
