Now a little over a month ago my husband and 5yo were sent for a bag of feed for the chickens. They came back with the feed (surprisingly) but also with a male and female duckling and forgot to check on the breed!!
So I do not know what breed my ducks are although I have done some googling and had it narrowed down because of the color they were when babies but now they are trumping that conclusion as they are not getting the colors we thought they would.
But my question is whether or not it is too late, seeing they are apart a good ways in age from the chickens, if I can SAFELY introduce them to the flock without any harm coming to any of them?? We wanted to try and save some money and not have to build another coop but if need be we will just so I have that piece of mind that nobody is being hurt or bullied lol.
I did go in with both ducks yesterday into the run of the coop and let the flock just walk around me and my initial thought was I was going to have to fight off my rooster but he showed little interest. It was actually my Bertha who started getting closer and making defensive noises.
I also know that the drake could possibly take advantage of my hens since there is only one female duck.
Any and all advice or guidance is greatly appreciated!!
