Do I need to separate my 2 meat bird from the rest of my hens?? They are about 2.5 times the size of my smaller chicks and they are eating constantly! They are about the size of my ducklings, should I put them in their brooder???

Thanks

I would separate the chicks, the meat birds might step on the other chicks, and they certainly will eat all of the food if you let them.

I personally would not brood them with ducks, just because ducklings are so so messy.


Good luck
