    Anyone have any tips on how to introduce new ducks to a flock. Want to try to avoid any problems. Will my drake try and beat up any other males? Can more then one drake be in the flock? Thanks for any help.

    I wish I had some tips for you. I have a 5 week old pekin I've been trying to integrate into the flock and Shifu the duckling is terrified on them and I dont think she quite knows shes a duck. Plus the flock isn't all the interested in her. I am currently trying to find some other ducklings younger than her so she can have her own flock.
