    I just got 4 pullets & 6 bantum chicks, plus 4 ducklings-2 are mallards & 2 look to be pekin or some other fairly large light colored breed.

    I want to house the chickens & ducks separately and plan to sell off or eat any extra roosters. I only really want 1 rooster as I am in town & will have these in my backyard. I know I need the duck pen to be big enuf for a small wading pool, but I need to know how big to make the "house" to comfortably house 4 ducks and how big the house & yard need to be for 6-10 chickens (mix of full-sized & bantums).
