    Hi,
    I'm new to ducks, have 10 chickens already and now 3 chocolate Indian runners. Was wondering if I can use my coop as a brooder ? Their 1 1/2 weeks old

    Ten adult chickens?

    I would not put ducklings in with adult birds. How did you envision setting it up? Water management is key with ducklings - there are several ways to keep them from soaking the bedding.
