    I also had one more important question. I recently got 4 pekin ducks 3 weeks ago and not expecting the pregnancy, my boyfriend and I were going to build a duck pen. As of right now, they are still in the brooder and it's a lot of work for me and my boyfriend is constantly working. Is it an option to pen them with our turkeys or chickens? Each have their own coop...it's not the ideal situation I had for my ducks....but I'm not sure I should be building a duck pen as of right now and they are getting too big for their brooder and too much work for me not to mention I'm not fond of all the poop and cleaning of the brooder in my first trimester.

    I honestly wouldn’t, but a lot of people think it’s fine to do

    First of all, congrats! For you question here (above) I would never put the ducks in this the chickens. Ducks are smarter and will keep the chickens away from the food and hog it all. I'm not sure about the turkeys though.
