    Recently my girls started laying and now they are getting picked on! I have 4 drakes, and just 2 girls. I know that I need a few more girls. First only one girl was getting beat up, but now I saw them picking on the other today as well! It's so sad to see them like this. I'm so mad at my drakes right now that I'm about to consider giving a few away! Dont mind how dirty they are. It's embarrassing but its below zero here so they havent really been able to swim!

    I had 3 drakes and 3 ducks and when one of my female pekins ended up with a broken wing, all the boys were put on craigslist.

    I hope your girls are doing better. you should prob isolate them.

    A big glop of Vaseline on her head might help that to heal and I'd glop the other hen as well. It might keep those boys from nipping on their heads too.

    I will try putting something on it. I wasnt sure what it was at first so I didnt want to mess with it. It seems to be healing pretty fast. See the pink on the edge, thats where she is healing already. She wont be bald there now will she??

    Ive been trying to figure out a way to divide them but the way my duck house and run is built its nearly impossible. I could block off half of the duck house but then the girls cant get outside if they want to. I cant alter it that much because its currently blow zero! Check out these pictures of my duck house and run and let me know if you have any ideas. Scroll down to about the middle of the page....
