    Hello,

    I have currently a broody chicken sitting on 8 duck eggs and she is on her 10th day. I put 8 under her because the fertility rate is low at this time of year but I candled them yesterday quickly and every single one is fertile and at the right stage :D. I have just purchased a house with a large run ready for them when they come off heat:) I have 3 call duck eggs, 3 east indie eggs and 2 miniature silver appleyards under the hen. I just wanted to know when the ducklings grow up will I be able to put those breeds in the same enclosure or would I face any problems?
