Ok, I did do a search, but couldn't find a question that was like mine, lol! I'm getting 5 ducklings on one of my chick orders. The first order will arrive with 10 polish chicks, 6 d'uccles, and the 5 ducklings-week of February 20th. Then I have another order, this one from Welps-due February 24th, with 30 chicks what was I thinking Anyway, I have two of the 75, or 100 gallon (can't remember) stocktanks-those big grey rubbermaid ones. I used them last year, and had 20 chicks in each and it worked out well. My problem this year, is going to be the bantums, and the ducks. Can the ducks be in with chicks to start? I've read about them being together later in life, but what about in the brooder? And the banty's should be seperated also I suppose. Maybe I can split off a little section somehow, until they are a bit bigger... I know I will be buying a bag of medicated chick starter, but what about the ducklings...I've read mixed reviews on whether waterfowl are supposed to have medicated starter....or do I need to buy a bag of feed specifically for ducks (if I can find it!) I want turkeys this year too; so does everyone here who has mixed flocks have 50 different bags of feed to contend with? I will have medicated chick starter, layer formula, waterfowl feed? and then turkey starter, turkey grower....eesh!
