ducks mating with chickens???
I went to our local co-op today to gather some supplies for my new chickens that are due to arrive in the first week in March. I entered into a conversation about my ducks that I have now and she told me to be careful about the male fornicating with the chickensÂ.well this is news to me. The ducks were given to me last year by a friend when I had a flock of chickens and she said it would be no problem to have them together. I didnÂt see any such problems mixing them. Now I am starting over with a new flock of chickens. Would a male duck go after a chicken to breed with it?? Was she pulling my leg?? She had only a male duck with no female. He killed lots of her hens (according to her) by trying to mate with them. What should I do now if this is true
