I'm new to raising chickens and ducks and have been reading many books and researching here on BYC for a few weeks now.
I recently got 4 chickens and 2 ducks. Their all growing like weeds and my husband and I are getting the coop ready. I was wondering if the chickens and ducks can be in the coop together at night? I'm going to let the chickens free range during the day and the ducks can spend time in the ponds and go about their business as well but I know they both need cover and protection at night. Is it possible for them to sleep in the same house? They all get along now really well. I've been letting them outside in a little fenced area together for the past few days since it's been so nice and there's never any nipping or bullying.
I would love some feedback on the issue from anyone willing to share.
