I currently own 10 Buff Orpington's. They are now a year old, and they are my big babies! I love, love, love having chickens. We are in a great routine, and they are easy for me to care for. We have a 8x4 coop and a 8x8 run for them.
I'd love to add 2 ducks to the mix this year? Will they need separate housing? Will the chickens not enjoy the new additions? and how much harder can Ducks be to care for than chickens?
I've been researching forever but love to hear experience.
We haven't provided a heating lamp to our chicken since they went to the coop at 5 weeks old, and we can't offer one to the ducks either so I'm hoping they wont need one either?
