    I bet you you are talking about what we call a brooder, where we keep the chicks or ducklings until they are a few weeks old. I don't think I have a photo. We never brooded ducklings and chicks together. Ducks make far too much mess of their waterers to be with young chicks. We kept them inside in a big plastic bin that we placed in our bathtub that we never use. We put a screen on top and placed the heat lamp over the screen. To get more ideas or see some photos you could try searching the forum using the term "brooder."
