Hi guys! Here's the situation... There are 4 ducks in need of a home..we will be getting the guys tomorrow... I have chickens already (30 of them!) Their coop is established- I let them free range but also give them layer feed a couple times a day. They have the old metal nesting boxes to lay in and I use pine shavings for the coop ground. I was going to fill up our baby pool with water for the new ducks, but What else do ducks need? type of food? can they eat same food as chickens and free range like them too? will they fly away? where/how/how often do they lay eggs? do they need anything different than the chicken nesting boxes to lay eggs? are they really and nasty and dirty as everyone says they are? Do I need to worry about the ducks infecting my chickens with any parasites/bugs/etc? Any info you guys have helps! I guess my main thing right now at this point is if i should segregate them from my chickens to make sure they are not sick and know what they eat. Thanks!!!
