I've had 2 orpington ducks (both hens) for about 2 1/2 years, but last week something got into the backyard while I was at work and got one of them. They were inseparable, calling out whenever one was out of sight of the other, so now I'm worried about the remaining one. In addition, the chicken on the bottom of the chicken heirarchy has apparently decided to go on the attack (they've always been housed together, and while that chicken would always bully the ducks, it was never more than just pushing in front of them to get to the food first, etc. ). This morning when I opened the hen house the poor lonely duck was bleeding from multiple pecks on her head. She is now sequestered, but I wondered if anyone has any suggestions? I had been planning to get a couple more ducks anyway, do you think this would help?
