    I know to introduce the baby chicks/ducks to the adults when around 3 months old. BUT, For maybe an hour or two a day can I let them out inot the adults run, while the adults are free ranging? I will sit there with them, but can they contract any diseases from the adults poop at this age? The chicks are 6 weeks, and ducks 4 weeks.
