    I've looked over this site for almost a year now; reading threads and trying to learn as much as I can. After 6 months of having my mixed flock I finally have a question that I can't seem to find an answer to.
    So I have ten pullets and 2 pekins. They all arrived in the mail together and I never thought to separate them right away. Now I am trying to figure out the best and least stressful/noisy way to separate them. They all get along fine but I never planned the ducks living in the chicken coop. They have decided they are chickens lol I want to move them to their own more duck appropriate house.
    Any suggestions on the best way to do so and hopefully without making my neighbors hate me?
    Also I plan on adding a couple ducklings this spring; I don't know if getting the ducks I have now to bond with them and then trying to rehouse them would be easier.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated [​IMG]

    Hi and welcome to byc - great to have you join us. Alas I have no experience with ducks so I'll leave a response to the experts here on byc - they'll be along soon I'm sure.

    Good luck

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think your duck questions would be best answered by other duck folks. You can post on the "Duck thread," just put that in the search box above, and it will pop up. Good luck with your duck plans.
