    we have 11 ducks that are now separated and one of the ducks we had hatched 3 duckling
    and then the next day when we went into the chicken coop there was to dead witch theft use
    with 1 duck and the next night they were all dead but we found the last duckling in the other
    pen so then we came to a conclusion that the other ducks were trampling and fighting the so
    could you please help me.[​IMG]

    More thena likely your drakes killed the ducklings. Its best to seperate your momma duck and her ducklings from the other ducks since the other ducks will drown or shake the ducklings till dead. What breed of ducks do you have?

    dear goat walker

    i have 11 ducks and they are all mallard ducks but when we put the
    other ducks back in with the 4 ducks we want to keep in the pen
    with the other 7 duck we are getting rid of the 7, they beat the duck that we
    just put in and we found one of the ducklings in the other pen and it
    was dead and every it could also be our turkey
    that free roams right.[​IMG]

    thanks for the info i'm sure i could make something work out.
