My son is in 4H and we went on a wonderful field trip to a breeders house. It was awesome the amazing set up he had and all the breeds of birds! He was kind enough to give each child a breeding pair and we drew names on what he had to offer. My DS got a lovely pair of black jap. bantams. My DD got to choose from what was left on the list since she is not old enough to be in 4H we got a pair of ADORABLE black call ducks! I am trying to learn all I can about raising ducks!! My first question is do ducks and chickens get along or can I put them with my flock? I am working on a separate pen for the japs since I can't put roosters together. I have a roo already in my main flock. It I put the ducks with the chickens will they peck them? Also how do ducks nest? Do their nests need to be on the ground? any help is MUCH appreciated!
