    Hey guys!
    So I have an injured female so I have put the two females together in a seperate coop to the males.
    They are all quacking and are not happy but the females are being over bred.

    Will the Drakes be fine housed together? I don't want them to fight!

    They will get over it. We would be anxious, too, if we were separated from our friends. With ducks, mirrors can be of tremendous help, and other entertainment (youtube or TV) if they are in the house and driving you batty.

    I have housed them in coops.. Not in the house, thankfully!

    The girls are in a small one but it's good for Hattie as she isnt supposed to move around with her leg.
    I am so worried about her!

    Does anyone know when their hormones will calm down? Please don't say it lasts all Spring and Summer?!
