    I had 1 male and 4 females. I had the duck quite a while. They started to lay in May and they hatched in June.After the babies hatched I took them away as I had problems with them being ated by crows in the past. After I took them they 3 out of 4 female flew away as one was still stitting. Ifoun it weird that they didn't all fly away together. I still have the drake and the female that was stitting. Was I not sopost to take the ducklings away?

    [​IMG]. What breed were they? Were they free ranging? You'll probably get better responses if you join us down in the duck section.
