    My female pekin laid a nest and did not sit on her eggs so i brought them and incubated them. 2 of the ducklings hatched. I took them outside and daddy pekin keeps bullying them? They are now 2 weeks old and i keep trying to introduce them but he does not seem to be adjusting. Is there anything i can do to keep my male aka daddy from being mean to the ducklings? Thanks for any advice!!

    They are way too young to be introduced. If you don't separate them he will most likely kill them. I wouldn't suggest introducing before they are 6 weeks
