Hello - I posted below about one 5 week old Pekin pulling the feathers out of the other 5 week old Pekin from time to time. Well in the time it took me to post that question the slightly bigger Pekin had torn out the wing feathers on the smaller Pekin on both wings to the point where there were open wounds on both sides! I was absolutely horrified. It happened so quickly! They have been inseparable since I got them at two days old. I had them outside for awhile today to get acquainted with my other two ducks (Rouens) and then I brought them back in the house for the night. Anyway, I put Blu-Kote on the wounds and now have them in separate cages but I don't know what to do next! They seemed to just adore one another, having to be near each other at all times, and getting upset when they were separated, even for a minute. I'm just so upset about this. What do I do now?
