Hi! I had this elsewhere and was advised to post here in the hopes of some more accurate advice! My husband and I, after a few years of bouncing the idea around have gotten our first flock! We jumped in all the way and got 8 chicks and 3 ducklings who range between 3 and 4 weeks old. They were in a brooder in our garage, until my husband completed their coop which has electric and we moved them out there to have more room. We cordoned off a section for them so that it would stay warmer and stays at 80°. We were given a trio of 5 month old Ancona ducks a few days ago which I just LOVE, but they're very skittish and spooked right now with the move and the lady we got them from did ZERO work to accustom them to human interaction. Yayyy. We put them in the other portion of the coop to quarantine them and get them used to their new digs until they mellow out. Everything was going pretty ok, until this morning. I went out to check on the babies and the Anconas had broken down the wire and wood barricade and were mixed in with the little ones. No one was injured. No one was scared and the ducklings were even huddling underneath the 5 month olds at this point. But the poor chicks just looked so annoyed and were trying to huddle away in a corner from the giant webbed feet everywhere. We're thinking about opening the entire coop back up, leaving the ducklings in with the bigguns, and putting the chicks back in a brooder in the garage until they're a bit larger and more easily defended. We've read a bunch about introductions between babies and adult ducks going badly, so the question is, will this all go south and leave poor Sean Thornton, Katherine, and Mary Kate the Khaki babies dead or suffering, or since no one got hurt thus far should it be pretty safe?
