    I ordered one from PartyFowl a couple months ago. I don't have any pictures of my pekin ducks wearing it, but here's a few pictures of my goose. She doesn't mind wearing it at all. [​IMG]

    Here's a picture of the diaper harness. I just put half of a baby diaper into the pouch.

    I do think 3 weeks is a little too soon. I would keep them in the brooder at least 4 weeks. Deeper water at about 30-45 days old when they are fully feathered.

    I have 2 Peking ducks about 3 weeks old, will those 2 types of ducks get along with them. I'm not sure hold old teh duck is that she found but it looks young.
    Is there anyway this duck could be a Muscovy?

    Keep the new one separate for now. New ducks are often quarantined, depending on where they came from (was he or she rescued from a store where no one wanted him or her? or a pond, where the duckling could have been exposed to disease or parasites?

    When introducing, it is best for the ducks to be close to the same size. But they benefit from being able to see each other, separated by a temporary fence. You may want to get a fecal test done to check for parasites and protect your others.
