    So my husband moved 1week old chicks in with 2 week old chicks. What would be a good heat to keep the brooder at? We also have 2 ducklings in with them

    Between 85 & 90, as long as you have warm spot and cooler spot, they will choose their own comfort. Right now I have 4 day olds with a week olds and 2 week olds chicks, and they are in a 3x4 brooder cardboard box and they sleep in groups with right comforts.
