    How old are the chicks going to be? month old duckling could harm young chicks i don't think I'd do it unless the chicks can jump up on a roost and stay out of their way then it would only be temporary. Welcome to BYC

    I personally would not, i mixed chicks and ducklings for 2wks thought i'd loose my mind.. between the ducks flooding the brooder and the chicks pecking the ducklings eyes? nah. and these babies were all within age range, bought from the same farm... with chicks being older than the ducklings you are even at greater risk for chicks pecking the ducklings.
