I have 3 Pekin ducks that I got September 1st. They were 6 weeks old. So that would make them almost 4 months. They want nothing to do with me, but that is ok I guess. I don't know if I have males or females. How can I tell? Also, they never go in their hutch, even when it is cold. I have it set up for them, but they prefer to sleep in the middle of the lawn. I am concerned as we are starting to get freeze warnings. What should I be doing to get them prepared for winter? Two of them have already started losing their feathers for their winter coat. I hard that males usually do this first? Usually they all stay together all the time but the other day I noticed that the two who have started losing feathers were huddles together and the other one was about 2 feet away laying by itself. Is there anything to this? I know this is a lot of questions but I want to be a really good duck mom!
