One thing they all do together is wait in the mornings for their fresh water, food, and treats.

We just added six new quacky pekin girlie duckies to our family. They are a sweet bright bonded group and look and sound to be Easter Duckies (approx 4 months old - which is 99% fully grown) They are loud when they want to be, which we love and is 100% acceptable where we live; but they also still have some of their squeaky sounds left. Our boys are overly excited about them. Missy, female pekin, is still somewhat neutral about the whole thing. We hope within a week or so, the two groups will be merged into one little flock of pet duckies. No names for the new girls yet ... it's too soon.

We adopted the girls from Carolina Waterfowl Rescue

A little bit later #1 & #2 (from the new group) challenged Missy (she is on the same side as the girls) Missy sort of looked them like she didn't care - "yeah so what you can keep your spot in pecking order- I don't have the energy for such foolishness" is what it looked like she was thinking.
Missy was excited when she had her first swim with the new girls but now she is hanging back to give them some time & space
Pretty little ladies
New quacky girlie duckies (part 3 of 3) relationship & pecking order negations begin btw Missy our 3yr old Pekin and the new bonded group of young Pekin girlie duckies ... All is going well ... We will give the girls a night to get settled then let them mingle with the boys tomorrow
