    So guys last Sunday my first duck went and vanished was heart broken because he was my last duck
    Hopefully my 2 new females will be good. Are Cayugas and Blue Swedish good with other birds?

    My ducks ( Rouen and blue Swedish ) do well with the chickens.

    Two WH's, two Cayugas and a runner. Sadly, the buff I ordered was DOA, so Mezter is replacing it, and I ordered a blue Swedish to travel with her in the beginning of March. There appears to be something wrong with the runner's left leg, but she's been eating and drinking. I think it happened during the shipping process because she came that way, and I don't thinm Metzer would have shipped a lame duckling. I hope the little thing makes it, because my fiancé loves it already. He named it Duckasaurus.

    Are you going to improve your security before you get any more ducks?

    You are right to protect your chickens, absolutely. But you write that he was your last duck. Were there others? And while living with the goats and pigs is probably fine, apparently something got him, if I read your message.

    I would not bring ducks into a situation where they would be killed by predators.
