Keeping my duck warm

Hello!

I have one duck and seven chickens. The chickens all lay in a higher coop and poor Enid (my duck) is stuck alone in a bottom one. We have higher coop so chickens can lay eggs without duck trampling them. We used to have another duck but he killed hens so he had to go, hence the one duck. Anyway, we have a heater on the way, but any suggestions on how to help keep her warm as she’s laying all alone up here in northern Michigan at night. Any decoy ducks that are warm or something? Maybe that’s weird?
Thanks in advance!

I would line the bottom of the coop with straw for the winter. Or even thick layer of pine shavings. It will help. Can you maybe find her a female duck friend? I'd be careful with heat in a coop.
