I don't usually need to do this, as i mainly raise my own, and/or raise from ducklings so they grow indoors for a few weeks and move out, anyways... i recently (like a week ago lol) obtained a new duck she's between 5/6mths i'd say, she's supposedly a June hatch but i have a 4mth old and i am thinking she's a bit older due to size anyways, she is isolated from my flock, penned way down and has a small pred proof box, that said my other ducks do come around and "talk" to her.. she's starting to pace the pen however. She'll need to be clipped as she can fly and while i do allow my birds that option a newbie i don't think should, I have several birds in abouts her aging, 3 Muscovy drakes, 1 duck and 2 buffs(females) from June and then 2 more drakes and 1 duck from March that are the main visitors to her now, i would like to assume she would go off with them, the rest of the ducks are mature.. next youngest being over 1yo and then up from there. I'd still house her separate at night, but trying to sort when i should let her out? She's from a breeder, not an auction or tailgate sale, from winning exhibition lines, she appears healthy and i did see pictures of her last home which including water pools and a large penned area, so housing was on the the up and up. Just worried as we're about to get cold here and she is singularly housed, she'd be more comfortable housed in a building with more birds(warmth) but i have to be mindful of coarse of my main flocks health.
