My chickens are exactly one week older than my ducks, so I've been keeping the ducklings in a separate brooder in fear of the chicks pecking at them for being too small. (The chickens hatched on the 7th of April, and the ducks on the 14th.) But now as they're getting older, I think that we should introduce them to each other before they get too old, and the chickens outgrow the duckies. (Which they're almost doing already!) How should we go about doing that? Also, in the future, they are most likely going to be sharing a coop to sleep in at night, or something connected to the coop for the duckies to sleep in. So they've gotta be friends! Any of you know what I should do? Thanks a ton!!
