We had recently bought 4 duckies and then bought another EE chick. The ducks were in the brooder so in went the EE too. Now, I think the EE 'thinks' she is a duck. She cuddles with them, plays with them in the water and this is what got me------I took the babies (ducks) out to forage awhile but left the EE in the hutch. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to catch her. She went nuts trying to get out. I finally gave in, let her out and she followed the duckies everywhere and paid no attention to the grown chickens. She was not a problem to catch again. Do I have 5 duckies now?
