    Hello!

    I started 13 chicken eggs in the incubator on March 30. We had no duck eggs available at the time. I now have 5 Rouen duck eggs. Our incubator holds 48.

    We have a pretty large brooder with a Brinsea Ecoglow.

    My question is once the ducks hatch can they also be put in the brooder...with the chicks? The chicks will be older than the ducks and not sure what to do about the feed.

    Thanks so much!
