    I was thinking about buying baby ducks but I have no clue about them!! I have several chickens of all ages right now and I was wondering if I could raise them together? But I have no clue about the environment and food? Can anyone give me the basics of raising baby ducks?

    The two can be raised together but ducklings are notoriously messy. They also have a tendency to make their bedding wet which isn't good for baby chicks.
