I just adopted a Rouen duck. Female. I have six chickens and they seem to be teasing and picking on her. I'm not sure if they are being mean or just curious. Should I get another duck and separate the ducks and chickens? or will they start to get along. I worry about her.

I would get 2 more ducks. When introducing new members to the flock I find it easiest with 3 or more. Plus ducks are very social birds, they prefer companions.

You definitely need to get her a buddy. When I got my first ducks this Spring, I had to get 2. After bringing them home, I see why. They are practically attached at the wing. ;) Seriously though, they go EVERYwhere together and do everything together. They'll hang out with the chickens a fair amount too but always together.
