    I have one mallard female and 2 pekins males in with 40 chickens. They all have gotten along until recently when I went on vacation and came home to a bald mallard. They had pecked all her head feathers out. I rescud her and put her in a cage by herself to rest up, she seemed relieved. I went to check her this morning and there are 3 blugrn eggs and a brown one? Is that possible? Any input would be fantastic. I didnt even know she was laying !!!


    Thanks
