    What sort of age should I add my bantam chicks to a flock consisting of 5 runner ducks, 6 chickens and 4 more bantams?
    Thanks

    I'd wait until they are 12 weeks old. Usually, chickens can go in with older birds at eight weeks of age, but because you have ducks and six large chickens, I think that it is best that you wait longer.
