    I recently separated my sebright and baby duck from the rest of the new flock because they are much smaller. My sebright(Chiyo) was doing fine with the larger birds, I believe, cause she ran around them pretty well and seemed to keep up. My baby duck was getting smushed and I think possibly injured. I didn't want it to be alone so I left Chiyo in there with her(a large bird cage within the coop with a heat lamp). I'm wondering, will Chiyo be okay if I put her with the big ones? I don't want them to become strangers.. and is my baby duck okay by herself? She seems like she misses the other ducks but she's just too little... The bigger ones I have(although all are younger than Chiyo) are two Rhodes island reds(they smush the baby the most), an ameraucana(she's not a prob cause they are bffs), another duck I got with the baby duck(it's much bigger for some reason), and another duck that is getting big about 10-11 in tall.. but sweet.. please let me know! Any advice is appreciated.
