    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us.

    You may wish to consider separating the ducklings from the chicks for the time being.

    Re: poop being stuck to one of the chicks - check out this link to see how to deal with the issue https://www.backyardchickens.com/newsearch?search=pasty+butt

    These links may be generally helpful at the moment -

    You'll find lots of info in the Learning Centre - https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center and if you have a specific topic in mind, just type it in the search box - there's a wealth of information on past and present threads.

    You may wish to consider joining your state thread as it will put you in touch with other BYC members in your area - https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/270925/find-your-states-thread#post_3239224

    All the best

    Hi, and welcome to BYC! CTKen has given you great information already, so I'll only add one small piece. If you don't have an extra brooder to separate them completely you could also put some kind of divider in, just make sure that both sides have enough heat and enough space to get away from the heat. Enjoy your new flock ;)

    G’Day from down under Mamapolla [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received some good advice and links to some great starting points, I will just wish you and your little ones all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
