    My 4 week old duckling lost her buddy a few days ago. I went to my local feed store to get her some friends, they are much younger. When can I keep them together? She has nipped at them a few times, but has started to relax around them.

    Thanks!

    I keep my ducklings that are 3 weeks apart together, though mine are a little older than yours.

    As long as you can meet the requirements of both ages and they get along well then you should be okay.
