    I just acquired days old chicks and ducklings from 2 different places,a hatchery and a breeder.
    Right now they are all in different brooders.

    How long do I have to wait before putting all the chicks in one brooder and all the ducklings in their own brooder?
    Thank you for any help.

    May want to seperate ducks from the chicks.. but if all the chicks are close to age they can go together

    Thank you so much.
    They are in their own brooders: chicks in a few and ducklings also in a few.
    Will put them togethere tomorrow: chickens with chickens and duckling with ducklings.
