I have just about had it with my chickens... Yesterday I came outside to find one of my favorite bantam cochins almost dead from being pecked so bad from the other chickens. The entire back of her white skull bone was exposed and I had to call my husband home to finish her off because I am too much of a wuss. My question is, will my call ducks ever act like this to each other? I am thinking of getting rid of all my chickens and just concentrating on the ducks. Are they so violent when introducing new adults or older ducklings? They seem so sweet to me now, but so did my chickens the first while I had them.
