Raising ducks with chickens?
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
So I have finally finished my coop outside just in time for this beautiful spring weather. I have relocated our chicks outside as well as our two ducklings we just recently acquired. I have built them a raised duck pond but was curious what other accomaodations I might have to make for the ducks? Recommendations on housing, feeding, and watering?
beautiful setup but be SUPER careful with that pond idea i fear (from experience) you are going to end up with some drown chicks!
Chickens and ducks can be raised together with no problem other than that and I always just put some rocks or something in the pond (many spot) so that anybody that needs to get out of the water can, keep in mind chicks can't jump out of water like a duckling so give them a way to gradually get out not just one big rock
