I had one of my hens kill one of three new ducks I put in their pen. They already have other ducks in there, and are used to them. I kept the new ducks separated in the pen for a few days and separated the one hen as well when I noticed her picking on the ducks once I let them out. I let the hen out yesterday and she didn’t pick on them until after I had left this morning and ended up killing one of the ducks. I separated her again but I’m not sure what to do with her in the long run. I don’t want to risk another life by letting her out again if she’s still going to pick on them. What should I do with her? None of my other hens mind the ducks except the one.
