I have 6 white pekins and 2 silkie chicks. They are about 7 weeks old and were raised in the brooder together. About 2 weeks ago the ducks were transferred to their new coop, but the chicks stayed inside because their coop isn't ready yet. Anyways I thought today I should let the chicks outside to free range for a bit while my son and I took a dip in our pool. As soon as I brought the chicks outside they ran over to the ducks and 2 of the ducks chased after them, grabbing, and peaking at the 2 chicks! It only seems to be 2 ducks that are doing it. Why are they being so mean? Do ducks and chicks usually not get along? Will they all be ok free ranging or will the ducks continue to chase the chicks around? I was hoping they could share the run area during the day than I could just bring the chicks back inside at night, don't seem very realistic now.
