HELP!!!! Duck and Chicken in a Dorm - Page 2

post #11 of 13

I've almost always had a few ducks living with my chickens.

I actually prefer the duck eggs to chicken eggs. Anyway, I haven't noticed any issues between the chickens and the ducks.

At least require the purchase of proper food or a care packet?

There are already laws in effect for a minimum purchase of 6...but it gets bypassed in various ways.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I just meant so that college students can't go buy a duckling for the heck of it!! Every time I have bought chicks, they helped with the food and everything.
