3 Chickens and 1 Duck
- Plum Nearly Farm
I found a lost 1 week old Swedish duckling on my property and took her in. She is now 6 weeks and I believe she is lonely. I have 3 chickens, but I am afraid those won't be enough for her. We have been introducing the chickens and duck everyday, but there is a lot of pecking going on. Has anyone had a single duck housed with chickens before? How did it go?
It takes time for chickens to accept any one new. and they can be pretty mean and injure the duck. Can you try and find the duck a friend craigslist or farm store? They really do better if they have a friend of their own kind.
