I have 2 Mama gray calls that have 3 ducklings each - just over a week old. They hatched more but we sold the majority of the ducklings and saved a few for them to mother. They are currently housed in separate pens with plenty of room, but the Mama's are becoming very restless, wanting to take the young ones out - especially since some of the other ducks come over and "talk" to them through the wire. I put the mate in with one of the ducks at night and he hasn't harmed the ducklings, but is more than ready to get out during the day. Suggestions on introducing them to the other ducks? Their moms are very protective but I'm still worried about them getting hurt. I have had one Mama out with our big Magpie and Blue Swedish (both girls) with no problems - I guess I worry more about the 2 boys and the chickens. They are a little bigger than this now but not much.
