I have a mama and 5 ducklings that are 8 weeks old. I have them in a large pen next to a shed - I have a large pasture with a pond where i have 2 other khaki Campbell’s and 9 Peking. Do I need to wait till they are 12 weeks old to put them out with the other ducks? That is what I have done in the past with the Peking ducklings. But these are as large as their mama and I know she is ready to get back to the pond also. I don’t have a way to separate them in the pasture/ pond area from the others. But I’ve never had any injuries when I’ve released new ones before. Just want to make sure they are ok to be let out at 8 weeks.
