Duck has been with his/her (still not sure yet) new younger siblings for 3 weeks. About a week after Nancy got the new babies, one of them passed away (the one we named Duck Bartowski- we are fans of the show "Chuck"). My wife was able to get another right away. (Side note- it is recommended to have at least a ratio of 3 female to one male just in case Duck is a male.)
We name the duckings Sticks, Mattis, and Pockets (she is the newest ducking). They seem to be getting along very well. At times, Duck can be a trouble-maker by nipping at their feet or chasing them from their pool. But, for the most part, they seem to get along well. They stay together in the same pen in our garage until we build their house and pen in our yard.
Duck will guide the ducklings to our yard and back to the garage. Here is a cute video of Duck leading them-
They grow fast! Duck is about 14 weeks old, and the ducklings are now about 3 weeks old. You can follow Duck and the gang on Instagram (@itsjustduck)
