    A friend found a couple of domesticated baby ducks. We got talking and now she is terrified that one of her neighborhood animals will kill them. As of right now she has set her downstairs bathtub as a pen but knows they will have to go outside. So now she wants to bring them to my house. Can I mix the ducks if there healthy? I know they would be safe at my house as I am known as "A Southern Hill billy with a NY mentality".

    Not to mention my female German Shepard is a great Mom and doesn't look at my chickens and Ducks like a meal.

    I would only mix if you know theyre healthy. I put my new babies in right away with my scovy ducklings, but only because i saw mom & knew she was very healthy.

    LOL! No worries there! I am on disability and only make around $600 a month. So my $4.00 Ducks are about $400 a piece on disability cash (Now throw 8 chickens in the mix). The only thing that will die on this property is the son of grump that trys to harm them.
