    I have 4 3 week old chicks and I am thinking about getting a couple of ducklings. How complicated could that be? Male ducklings or female ducklings? does it matter? Food differences? do they get on well together? please give me as much info as possible of suggestions? is this a bad idea?

    Hmm... You should probably try it, but keep a close eye on them. If they're getting along, then they will probably be fine.
