    We got four chicks at the end of February. Two weeks later we purchased six ducklings. I kept them in separate brooders inside for several weeks until it became too messy. I moved everyone outside to the bottom part of our coop, separated from our four big girls. They get along great, and this past weekend I let them out during the day with the big girls. The ducklings are so cute, but they are MESSY. It was impossible to keep them inside.
