    Sorry to say, it happens quite often when there is a dramatic size difference. You may have to build a seperate pen for the d'uccles, and let them free range after you put up the big birds. I have Silkies and Marans, and I don't ever let the two breeds in together for just this reason. Too much can go too wrong, too fast! Welcome to the odd little world of chicken parenting!
