I have three black sex link chickens aka BSL and 3 buff Orpington, they have just started to lay. They are very friendly and get along with all the other animals that I have. I just got a duckling that I think is a boy and about 2 weeks old, he is currently living in a cage with a heat light in my house. He is a very happy little duck eats good and seems to be doing good. I would like him to live with the girls, but I am concerned. I have introduced him to the girls but they don't seen interested at all, I am thinking that he is the only one & is going to be treated like the ugly duckling! Will one of the chickens take over the mothering roll to a duck? The duck is very attached to me follows me everywhere. I am nervous that he will not due well outside with the girls because he is so attached!!!
