I am planning on ordering a few more chicks from ideal poultry in a couple months. I have a serious slug problem and read that ducks love to eat slugs so that got me thinking...... You know where this is going! LOL Im thinking I want to add a baby duckling or 2 to the order. My problem is that I have 1 brooder so if they are together from day 1 would the chicks and ducklings get along? Also as far as food goes I buy an organic food from a local supplier and they sell chicks and ducklings and the food appears to be the same for both so I don't think that should be a problem but are there any real concerns I should worry about? For my coop I feed a natural game bird pellet with higher protein levels as all my birds seem to be doing so well on it. with my own organic scratch mix and oyster shells on the side. Would this be ok for an adult? Oh and my birds all free range my 1/4 acre yard almost every day from morning till they put themselves to bed and they get lots of the neighborhood left over veggies and fruits..... Im also wondering as an adult if I only have 1 duck can it sleep in the coop with the chickens or should I keep it seperate? I am considering just a common mallard duck or comparable size. I have mostly bantam size silkies and other hens but I do have a couple LF as well. I know this is chicken forum but I figured some1 on here would be able to offer a little advice.
