I have 4 adults that are an established flock I also have 10 babies (born around June 20th) that are their own "flock". I have both flocks separated and would LOVE to get them all in one flock soon. But with the adults, I have 2 males and 2 females. The females (one in particular) are being WAY over bred, and I have noticed the adult males paying WAY more attention to the babies then I like. The babies are around 7 weeks old now, at what age will they be safe (breeding wise) around the adult males? I have one male in with the babies (same age) and he has shown NO signs of being sexually active I was going to use his activity as a sign that all the babies were of age and old enough that the adult males will not hurt the baby females. I ended up moving the adult females in with the babies a bit ago just to give them a break from the over breeding. One was getting way too much attention and it was harming her (scabs). The 2 adults are starting to get along with the babies but not 100% yet (never any fighting). They do go into the house at night together so they have to get along. But the males will not leave the side of the pen the babies and adult females are in. I think that is keeping the females from 100% integrating with the babies. I am looking into rehoming one of the adult males ..just in case ..but Id love to know when I can safely put them all together in the pen and in the house at night. (just after that I want to free range all the ducks and lock them up at night .right now the adults are the only ones free ranging during the day) Thanks all!
