Just joined a few minutes ago after searching through the site for months for advice.
Just got our first flock just about 2 months ago 3 black Australorps, 3 reds, 1 khaki campbell, and 1 blue swedish. Now that they've gotten bigger I have a feeling that 2 of the Austs are Roos. The ducks and the chickens are kept in the same fun but are housed separate.

Pictures of the Coop and Run will come later once I get home to take some. Any advice would be appreciated.

Here are the Photos I have of my flock with early pictures of the coop and run. The ducks I have in a large dog crate over night with a tarp on top to keep water from getting in while its raining.

It looks cold. I have a question I have never had ducks, what is the purpose in getting ducks

It was cold at the time because it was early march before I got them all. Ducks eggs from what I've read are larger than chicken eggs and are better to bake with, plus the most main reason I got ducks is because the wife and the kids wanted them

oh that's funny I've just heard they back wash in the water a lot so it makes it dirty.
