I am new to backyard chickens....about 6 weeks. We bought 4 ducklings at the same time we bought the chicks (bo and br). We added 4 pr about 4 weeks ago and had them all together and things went very well until last week when I moved them all into the coop. Suddenly the ducks are being little brats to the younger PR s. They chase them away from food and water and have even caused them to hide in little crevices in the coop. Poor little babies seem scared to death. Has any one has success keeping ducks and chickens together or is my only option to move out the ducks?
