    A little over a month ago I gave my Pekin Drake away to a friend. He's a Jumbo and he was just too hard on my 2 Pekin Girls. Right after I gave him away both Pekin Hens went broody. The old Hen hatched out 2 babies which were a friend's eggs. I had to seperate my Hen's because the younger one went into the nest and accidently killed the first duckling. The girls are in the same pen with a chicken wire wall separating them. Youngest Hen is no longer broody and has begun laying again. Yesterday I allowed both grown hens into the swimming pool together and my older girl started topping my younger girl, trying to mate with her LOL
    I've got a 2 month old mallard drake in another pen with 3 mallard hens that are almost one month old...I'll be so happy when I can move the mallards in with the pekins and my pekin girls can go back to acting normal LOL
