    We are hatching two duck eggs one of the eggs is hatching but the other one didn't. I'm concerned about this one not having a friend to bond with. If I bought two more chicks the same age would all three bond together or do they only bond in two's I don't want him/her to be lonely all our grown ducks are in pairs so I wasn't sure how three would bond.
