    Quote:just wondering how old they are? if they are at least a mo. old they should be big enough to go up against any chickens that wanna pick on them. I don't have chickens but I put my 2 Pekin ducks out when they were a mo. old. Now im going to have to intrigrate my 12 day old African Gos. and Khaki Campbell duckling to them a little bit every day, I figured that by the time they move into the Pekin's house they will already be buddies. I hope. Good luck.
    U can try to take them out with u and mingle with the chickens just to see how they react to them, at least your there to supervise.
    Hope this helps
    Thanks,

    There about 5 weeks old. I just don't want anyone to get hurt. I really just want everyone to get along. I'm just looking for the best way to introduce everyone. Yeah I was think maybe I should try supervised visits for a little while. Hopefully it will work out
