    I put my three week old duckling in with the 11 - 1week old ducklings and I'm trying to let them work it out. I'm not sure who is getting picked on more. Eleven little duckling hopping on you is probably not much fun. Lucky, the big duckling is nibbling at everyone's toes. I hope it works out. One brooder would be easier than two. I'm sure lucky is getting lonesome, but not sure he knows he is a duck. I just let him go for his first swim and he stayed pretty close to me and splashed a bit, but not take off paddling. Maybe being with the other ducklings will help him figure it out. : )
