    My ducklings are now three weeks old. I put them in a cooped up area outside. The only problem is my two older ducks don't like them and often attack. So now the ducklings are unfriendly and scared. is there any way i can have them live in the same coop?
    (i realize this is just a pecking order problem...but my ducklings could get injured.)

    Please respond! thanks!

    Divide their brooder with plastic poultry fence, with each having water and feed.

    You write that they are outside. How are you protecting them from predators and keeping them warm enough?
