brooding a chick w/ ducks?

    Can I brood a chick w/ ducklings?

    I had a single chick hatch today. Maybe one more will hatch, but I don't have any pips yet on day 22.

    Duck eggs are due to go in the hatcher ASAP and most of them look good.

    And I have a couple of 4 week old Silkies that could potentially stay with the little chick.

    Please - any suggestions?

    I would try putting it in the brooder with a silkie and watch to see if the silkie will mother it
