Duck eggs are now laid, will they be able to stay in the coop with the chickens when they hatch?

    I'm not so sure if I have to build a brooding box for the ducklings or if i could keep them in with the rest of the flock. Since I raised 4 mallards with the chickens I'm just not so sure really..

    But.. would the others hurt the ducklings is my main concern as well.

    Help? D:
