Ok I have 9 ducks. I have one that is handicapped, her leg is turned in slightly. Anyway, two of the drakes seemed to pick at her, so I separated males from females. She has integrated well with the females and they all go near the fence where the males are and sit all day. Males stay next to fence all day as well, won’t eat or anything. My question is should I keep them separate all year? Or just during mating season? My handicapped duck is doing so well, I don’t want to jeopardize that by putting them all together, but yet they all seem to want to be together.
