    Does it work to have baby ducks and chicks in the same brooder? I jost got some bantam chicks today and my ducklings will be coming the week of the 19th.

    The ducklings are going to keep your brooder wet. I hatched some ducklings out 3 weeks ago and no matter what I tried to do, my brooder was always wet. Chicks do not like to be wet, so I would not keep them in the same brooder.
