I have two sister mix Caugya and Pekin. They were born last Oct 16. I rescued these ducks and they are ok friendly but dont want to be petted or held. Can get close within 2 feet just never held. came from a larger flock and were picked on I think with little human contact. Today I was given a male Pekin born "last summer" beautiful friendly came from a kid who raised him from birth. This guy has never been around other ducks. You can walk over, pick him up and he loves to be petted. He will follow me around. So now they are all three in the same area, about 16 feet by 24 feet back yard with a pond too. The only issue came when they were being fed this evening, the girls share the same food bowl and water when eating however, now I know have to keep the boy and girls seperate when feeding for now anyway. The boy ate his and chased the girls if the even looked at his food bowl and water. The girls are uninterested in him and seems vise versa. So far all is well. Gonna let the pen open tonight into the run. The two girls automatically go in the dogloo inside the pen at night; kinda thinking they will work things out; what are other peoples thoughts about this. I could lock the girtls in the pen and let him have the run with a smaller dogloo with hay to sleep ?????????? Just not sure they should all three be locked in the pen at this time Pen is 6' by 10 feet.
