    Hello all! I am Summer. I am 26 and live in a small town in west Texas. My sister in law introduced me to chickens and ducks. I now own 3 chickens and so far 2 ducklings. I should be getting 3 more ducklings today. [​IMG]

    Just received these 3 little ducklings. They are old enough to be outside, but i went ahead and put a heating lamp out there for them. Should I feed the chickens and the ducks seperate? These babies are on the chick starter and the hens have been trying to eat it all instead of their pellets.

    Thank you! The chickens were given to me about 2-3 weeks ago. All 5 ducks I got this morning.
