    Introducing new females to Muscovy father and six ducklings.
    Have six Muscovy ducklings five weeks old. Lost mom to raccoon. Dad is lonely. How do we introduce adult Muscovy females to the group? We have found three females to adopt.
    Ducks are all free range with large pond and very large grassy space. Ducklings are locked up at night but free range during the day.

    Personally I would pen the adults and ducklings where they get use to the place---viewing through the wire and seeing the male, feed and water them---then in a few days I would turn them out late and watch them and see how the male acts----hoping he accepts them all. Good Luck
