Hi everyone!! I am new to duck ownership. I brought home two little ducklings from the feed store which I believe are mallards. They are super cute!! The gal at the feed store told me that the males were supposed to have bigger heads and so I picked out two little babies which I hoped were a male and a female. Who knows what I will end up with?!?! I don't know if she knew what she was talking about but I had no idea so I just went with it. I have two flocks of about 20 total chickens, including a young roo. I have two coops with attached runs and no room to build a third one. Can my new little duckies live and sleep in one of the coops/runs with the hens when they are bigger? Can ducks catch any diseases from chickens or visa versa? Also, how much water do they need? What I mean is, how deep should their pool be? I am concerned that the chickens might get in there. Has anyone had an issue like this. I know, all questions I should have had answered before I brought their cute little butts home but I couldn't control myself. Not to mention, my husband was the one who encouraged me to do it. This guy fought me every step of the way when it came to getting the chickens but he's excited about the ducks! Any answers are welcome and feel free to add any more info for this duckie newbie. Thanks!!
