I'm devastated to say the least. My flock of ducks and chickens have just turned 3 months and I was slowly letting them out every few days. They would happily come back midday to be put away. They were nearly ready to lay. When I returned home yesterday my two biggest chickens and my biggest duck have gone missing. I'm on acerage so it's not a close nit community but my neighbour has a back access road and affirmed to me he had been up there and not seen anyone else.... My flock ever split up and to say the least he's a very shady character. There were no feathers so no struggle and I'm hoping that they have found a new home (but really I know what's happened) I'm now left with a small 3 month chicken, rooster, drake and duck. I was planning to breed them but I have fears of inbreeding too many times will cause issues. I do plan on getting more babies as I found it easier for them to trust me but I'm not sure how to introduce them to the rest of the flock. I have read that the bigger birds will pick on the babies so I'm at a loss as to what to do. Please if anyone has some information would be great.
