    Hello
    Now I am thinking of getting 2 ducklings and 2 chicks.
    Can I put them together? or would it be better to build a separate
    area for each, perhaps attached but not open for each other to go into
    each side. and do ducks need a nesting box?

    We have had ours together for a few weeks using the same starter/grower feed and water, they will be fine. One thing though, the ducks are allot messier than the chickens.

    Thank You Very Much! I've read that few times now, so maybe no ducklings for us.
