Does anyone have experience with chickens and wild mallards cohabitation? It seems that three mallards (3 females, 1 drake) have grown fond of our chickens. Our hens free range during the day, and have started co-mingled with the ducks. The ducks will even eat out of their feeder! I put out a kiddie pool for them and gave them treats (I couldn't help but try to befriend them!). Aside the cost of feeding 4 more birds which doesn't bother me, what things should I be weary of? I did notice that our leader chicken pecked the beak of one female mallard in warning without backlash so maybe they've established an order between them? Here's a pic!
