    I have 6 ducks and was going to pick up 6 Cornish rocks. I will house them separately. Anyways I have been free ranging the ducks during the day and locking them in their coop at night. I plan to do the same w chickens. I'm just wondering if allowed to free range to I still need to supply them feed. It's spring here in ny and all the nasty bugs I hope they eat are just coming out.
