    Can you put ducks and chics together?

    We got a couple of chics that are about a month old

    and we just got 2 ducklings that still have the fur coat.

    I was wondering if I could put them together or is it better to keep them apart.

    You can certainly keep them together but keep in mind that ducklings are much messier, and tend to empty waterers.
    Chicks are much more susceptible to being cold, especially when wet, so just keep an eye on your brooder to make sure chicks stay dry.
