I have a single duck with my 18 chickens. Will she be okay with out one of her own kind? She was kind of a second thought while picking up four pullets from a favourite breeder. My fiance gave me those puppy dog eyes. She wanted this duck.. I don't know a thing about them.. She doesn't want to swim in the big tub of water I put out for her.. Is this weird? I thought all ducks loved to swim She dunks her head in it and makes a mess, but doesn't get in. It's big enough for her to do so. What treats would you recommend? Can she eat whatever the chickens eat? Anything I should keep her away from? Oh and is the ramp for the chickens okay for her to get into the coop with? So many questions!! She is a mixed breed. A runner mixed with something. I will post pictures later today if anyone is interested. She is young and hasn't laid any eggs yet. How old are ducks when they start to lay? Give me any/all pointers you can think of to keep my little Ruth happy!
