So I got three Pullets back in May of this year. Two buff ones and two dark ones. One of the dark ones was killed by the friend's dog I was riding with before we got me back home with my new chickies. The buff's of course picked on the little darky but now bout a month ago someone gave me thirteen more hens (New Delaware mostly white with some coloring strung here and there through their feathers) and another person gave me three white egg laying ducks. One boy duck and two girl ducks. It has all been very entertaining watching them all but now we have a problem. Well it seems like a bit an issue to me but for others it may seem perfectly normal. The ducks were so cool. They adjusted right away and were laying eggs the first few days. The buff's had just started laying. The darky well she was laying but her egg shells were soft and she was eating them; plus she was eating the buff's eggs when she could beat me to them. The whitey's well they took longer to adjust and a few laid eggs but only a couple of them. The previous owner didn't make friend's with animals at all so the whitey's were not friendly at all when they first arrived. That is changing quickly and they think they wanna be pals like the buff's now. The buff's are not skiddish around us or the dogs and cats like the newer animals. Darky has never been friendly even though she was raised inside the house just like the buff's. They were all treated the same so I figure it must just be the breed stock they came from. I had those type before and they were all friendly but this one is different for some reason. Now the buff's started laying their eggs in the duck's nest and talk about proud. They squawk and holler until I come out to their area or go to the door at that side at let them know how proud I am that they laid an egg. The ducks get kinda agitated about the buff's being in their nest but they also seem to be adjusting to that a little better day by day. I think perhaps the buff's started laying in the ducks nest because of the darky eating their eggs. The darky is mean to all the other new chickens and she attacks them whenever they are near her or in an area she thinks she wants to be. Well today it seems we have a new issue with the buff's and the ducks. The larger buff thinks she wants the male duck to breed her. This dumb thing was born a chicken but she identifies as a duck. The female ducks also appear to be just a bit jealous as boy duck likes the buff and he was going to try and accommodate her this morning. I went and looked out when I started hearing the commotion coming from the ducks side of the run. Girl ducks and the buff were all squawking. After observing what was transpiring I went out to the pen. The buff jumped up on the rail that separates the ducks from the chickens when she saw me. I told her, "What are you doing in the ducks pen?" and "You really don't want boy duck doing what you think you want him doing. You need to stay out of their pen." In the midst of all this confusion it has come to my attention that the buff chicken who apparently is totally confused could be a problem. Now the darky boy duck doesn't like at all. For all those times she has been pecking the whitey's she seems to be getting peck herself; a payback of sorts. Perhaps even justice who knows. Maybe it has to do with you reap what you sow who knows. My dilemma is as follows, should all the other chickens be subject to the duck if he thinks the chickens should be like girl ducks. Plus the darky picking on all of the other hens pulling out their feathers is an issue. How do I get them all to be socially acceptable of one another without trampling on one another's rights or becoming dinner? Perhaps we should just have roast duck and fried chicken but then I would lose having fresh eggs.
