HI all, new here, and new with ducks and chicks! We went to the tractor supply store for a house repair kit two weeks ago and came out with six ducklings. Thought it would be good "practice" on caring for our chicks (and testing the environment - heat, food, water supply at the chicken coop) before our 27 chicks arrived. Ducks are great, but when we got the chicks they do NOT play together well at all. The chicks try to peck the ducks and the ducks peck the chicks. I've separated them for fear the ducklings (who are much bigger) will hurt the chicks. Anyone have any experience with this? I think the ducklings will run away to the river at the first chance they get (we live on the Potomac), would like them to stay, but they need to live with the chicks (we only have one coop!). IS pecking OK, are they just trying to figure out the pecking order, or will they really hurt each other? Please help!
