    I have six ducks that are a total squad and will chase anyone away who comes near to them, but I also have 4 younger ducks that are some of the ones that get chased by these six ducks that are older than the other four by 1-2 weeksish?? I have a bigger pen that I would like to put all 10 ducks into, but the older ones bully the younger ones. So to get to the point... how do I get them to get along and have them in the same pen? Thanks in advance!

    I'm assuming by "ducks" you mean all female. Are any of them broody right now?

    Can you put them in pens next to each other for awhile? And then slowly integrate them. As long as they are just chasing and not grabbing and pulling feathers, they will need to just establish a pecking order and unfortunately the young ones usually end up on on the bottom of it. Good luck.
