    While I do not have chickens, I do have ducks and guineas, and have been frequenting the duck/guinea forums. I raised Muscovys free range for about 10 years, but sold them all and have decided to go with Blue Runner ducks. I have 2 drakes and 8 ducks, about 1 week old. They are in a brooder in my garage. I know they are different than Muscovys, as in they don't fly and are smaller. I have read and studied and researched, but would really like a "hands on" opinion.

    I am in the Columbia, SC area. I am used to having ducklings in the summer time, and not real sure about when I can transition these babies into an outside enclosure with shelter. I have an idea, but would really like confirmation.

    Also, is it possible to pen the ducklings with 4 adult guineas in their night pen? Would the guineas pick on them? They would have their own run during the day for a while.

    Thank you in advance for any and all advice.

    Guineas can be quite aggressive as you may know, but it is impossible to tell how they will behave with ducklings
