we bought chickens about 2 weeks ago were happy so one of my friends recived 12 chcikens and 2 ducks from someone who thought they were doing a nice thing..but my friend never wanted chcikens (she hates birds ) and her dh thought he could handle them and come to find out he cant stomach even cleaning them so her dh called mine and my dh offerd to take them. ( thats alot of farm birds lol ) but mine are a cross from rhod island reds and something else i cant remeber but there egg laying birds..my friends are meat birds. hers are still small and cute mine are getting bigger can they co exist with each other till they are outside bound as for the ducks we dont have a pond i dont even know what kind they are yet..so any info on them will be helpful. right now her ducks are with her chickens...Answer Question

The term "pecking order" was coined for a reason. It's based largely on personality. Some chickens are more dominant than others, some more docile. Regardless of space, sometimes the dominant ones will peck on the docile ones. Giving more space can help, but doesn't always cure the problem. I recommend Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens. I found mine at Tractor Supply.

Next question in Home & Garden
Do you buy in bulk or only what you need when you need it?
