I'm new to raising chickens and ducks and I only have the three. The duckling and the older chick are best friends and hate being separated. I just had a new chick hatch and I have nowhere I can put her except with the big ones. The chick tries to approach them a lot but the bigger chick chases it away and pecks it, and the duck has pecked it before too, but I'm not sure if it was mean or not since she does it to the big chicken and me all the time, kind of sifting through the feathers. I always remove the smaller chick when this happens though. She has a little cave she can crawl into and they can't follow her but I have school tomorrow and I'm worried about leaving them alone. They have two food bowls and a large waterer so that is not a problem, but I'm concerned the bigger chick won't just let the little one go. I have no where else I can put her though. Please help me?
