Keeping ducks and geese together in the same coop?

    Hello

    I'm hoping for some advice. I've recently been given a mix of ducks (Muscovy and khaki Campbell's) as well as two lovely ganders.

    The previous owner kept them together in one coop, but my neighbour keeps her two geese separately from her ducks, and I'm wondering whether this is a better option?

    Thanks for your help,

    It varies. Some people can keep their ducks and geese together. My geese would hurt the ducks if they were shut in at night with them. Mine were raised together but don't get along anymore.

    Thanks for replying.

    I'm leaving them together in the short term as they've been together and I don't want to stress them anymore than necessary, but I think I will build a goose house over the next few days and move them in there shortly.
