    I can only speak from MY experience......mine get along fine.....when I tried to separate my ducks , they kept going back to chicken coop......... I have 3 Muscovy ducks that live,freerange and sleep with my chickens..........nothing different as far as pecking,poking and such , chickens and ducks do it to eachother.......no harm done......and I have a HUGE drake....
