I let my flock o' chickens and Cayuga pair range freely. My 4 call ducklings are about 12 weeks old now, maybe 13, and they are outside in a penned area. They haven't tried to fly, nor do they seem to want to swim in their dishpan pool. (I think my midget ducks are mutants or something!) Anyway, I was wondering if it would be safe to take down the temporary fencing where I've penned them, so they can get out and about. The funny thing is, I wanted them to be segregated but visible to the flock during their integration period, and several chickens have flown into the duck pen to eat the duck's food and just hang out. Ducklings and chickens are totally comfortable together. I might as well take the fence down, if that were the only consideration. I just wonder if the little duckies will come back to the duck house they sleep UNDER. Yah, they don't go inside it... Any comments, suggestions, recommendations?
