One of our chickens hatched a duck egg Nov. 1 of this year. We've kept the duck in the basement in a dog kennel since then. (with playtime and bathtime in the tub). He is currently under a heat lamp. What do you think will happen if/when we put him in with our chickens in a few weeks? We have 10 chickens and a rooster. It's snowy, freezing temp here. We can't keep him in our basement forever. I don't think he's happy there. I worry that when we put him in with the chickens, the rooster (a bantam) will whip his butt if not kill him...altho, even now, the duck is twice the size of that rooster. thoughts please.
