I have 3 pullets at the moment and their going to start laying soon. One of their combs is bright red and the others are pretty red too. I am going to buy more chicks and two ducklings after the pullets start laying and becoming broody. Here are some of my questions: -when my pullets start laying, is there a certain amount of time that has to pass before they can become broody? -Am i able to get baby chicks and ducks in the winter? I would have my chickens be broody and they would adopt the chicks and ducks. Would'nt they be warm enough under the hen? -How long after the pullets combs start getting red do they start to lay? -Can baby ducks swim in cold water or would they have to swim in a normal/warm temperature? -Can ducks eat chicken food or do i need to get different feed for ducks?
