I wanted to get 3 chickens (2 female white leghorns, 1 unknown gender silkie) and 2 ducks (undecided breed, female). If I put them in a chicken tractor with 4sqft per bird in the shelter and 10sq ft per bird in the run would they get along? I've heard of them being together, but a "tractor" type coop is never really that big and I'd prefer to not have to deal with 2 different coops.

I personally wouldn't mix species in an area that small. Some birds tend to be more aggressive with the pecking order and in an area that small it could be problematic. Plus I would fear the ducks would make too much of a mess for the chickens in an area that size.
