    I heard gurty yelling up a storm and I look out my window and see that she had My Rhode island hen by the breast feathers pulling her out of the coop, And my RIR diddent know what to think, The RiR looked stunned. Gurty...Gurty..Gurty... needs to go back to bed [​IMG]

    I have never had any of my ducks be mean to my chickens.
    MOF, my ducks are afraid of my chickens even though my chickens ignore them.
    Now the new Muscovy have been snapping at the other ducks but no one has pulled any feathers out.

    My ducks HATE the chickens. When I had them living together, they would spend the entire day poking the chickens with their beaks. Now and then, I'd see them grab some feathers. The chickens tried their best to stay away from them.

    Good luck.
