    Would 2 pekins and a rouen get along with my indian runner and black swedish that have already imprinted on me? Mine are about 10 weeks old and the 3 i saw today were 4-5 weeks old and were friendly. They would run but as soon as you would catch them they would let you hold them. Mine already love to be held and cuddled but they all are going to an outside pen during the week so i decided that they needed some friends. Think that they will all get along together?

    As a general rule, they will all get along. There may be a few minor skirmishes along the way as they establish dominance within the flock. But in the end they'll all be buds, when they're not fighting with each other during mating season (which is normal).

    Just keep an eye on them. You may have to interfere to avoid injuries until they "meld".
