You can't unless you have a broody hen on eggs that are about to hatch. Put the little ducklings under that hen at night. You may have to take some of her eggs though, so you can put the ducklings in her nest. This has worked for some people but there's a possibility it won't work. It's just something you can try. Try one duckling one night and watch very closely the next day.
Keep them separated. Attacking anything different is common among animals.
Yes, keep them separated. Chickens need a drier environment than ducks do.
yes- very bad. Chickens peck at any spot of blood on another chicken and can not stop. They make the injury bigger and deeper by the day and more prone to infections. There's a product you can buy to stop the pecking- it's called blue kote. Wash the injury if needed and spray on the blue kote until the pecking stops. If there's no injury, you can use vicks vapor rub. Chickens don't like the taste of it. But don't put it on an open sore.
If the birds are pecking the Silkies while they are at roost you will need to supply them with more space. If the aggression is out in the yard or during the day the only way to really stop it is to separate them. It is usually one or two bullies who get things going so when it is time to cull the flock take the "bad" birds first. The pecking order in a flock is constantly changing and Silkies are a very NON aggressive breed.
Not that I know of, but you can get an ointment from the feed store called Rooster Booster or Stop Bite. After rinsing the blood off of the chicken you dab this ointment on the area and it promotes healing, causes the area to numb and keeps others from pecking it. This saved the lives of several of the birds in my flock.
I have used pine tar to some effect to stop chickens from pecking other chickens. You smear a bit around the bare spots on the bird that is being attacked. A rooster pecking at chicks probably means you need to start looking at soup recipes.ANS2:Well, you could try negative reinforcement, such as spraying water or pushing away. its kinda like showing dominance though so its a hard habit to break and some of the time it wont work. you could also try clipping the beaks, they'll still peck but it wont hurt as badly.
The only way to accomplish this is to separate them until the chicks are old enough to stay out of harms way. Allowing the chicks to socialize with the flock can be done with a temporary cage, the chicks are protected yet among the older birds. All flocks of chickens have a pecking order and there is no way to safely stop this, the more grown up your chicks are, the better able to handle the pecking and chasing until peace reigns in the hen house.
