    I have three week and a half old Pekin ducklings and I will be getting day old Embden goslings Wednesday, can they be kept in the same tote and get along? When they are old enough to be outside can they be housed in the same coop at night?

    Yes they can. It's also good so they will get used to eachother and never have a problem. In the beginning they think they are all the same anyway ;)

    Oh yay! I keep reading that Embdens are mean to other birds smaller than them. But I was hoping if I got them all as babies they would think they belong to each other lol. Thank you!

    Well the ducks might be mean to the new fluffies. Just have a back up plan.

    Yeah the ducks were a little mean, they are separated in different browsers now lol. Well try again when the goslings are older

    I use plastic totes sometimes where the edge is low enough they cay eventually see each other. It helps.

    Make sure the goslings and ducklings see eachother!
    The goslings will eventually turn mean otherwise.
