    Wondering if anyone knows if chickens and ducks could temporarily share the same house at night. We are having a minor, temporary housing crisis and being able to house the two groups together would be a huge help.

    I dont see why not. My ducks lived in the coop with the chickens. They didnt roost so I had to be sure the floor was somewhat clean for them.

    I would think you should be able to get them settled with an area covered)from dropping poop) for the ducks ~ away from the chicken's roosts.

    The co-habitation experiment was a bust. The khakis put the run to the chickens in no uncertain terms.
