DW has been in quarantine with his three pullet friends for almost a month now. We are getting ready to release them this weekend. We won't be getting any new ducks til spring, and currently it's just him. I know the pullets will go off with the chickens, and I'm worried about DW. Will he be ok with no other duck friends til spring? Should we make him a special place to sleep? He won't be able to roost with the chooks, obviously. The barn floor is straw covered, but not deep straw. We close it up at night, to keep the flock safe. The chickens will be running around during the day, and he can mingle with them then, but I am worried that he might be lonely and/ or cold. Should we just keep him in a pen til spring? I will feel bad if we have to do that, too. We also have four peafowl, but they are probably too big for him to hang with...:/ The other alternative is to keep the pullets in a pen with him until spring, but that's not the greatest solution, either, since we bought the pullets to supplement our current hen population and try to keep the hen/ roo quota a little more fair...Still, I would be happy to do that if it will keep him happy. Plan is to get some young ducks in spring, when they are sold at the feedmill. We are already very attached to him..I knew this would happen..
