In the Brooder

So I just got two 3 week old ducklings from my neighbor who I have set up a brooder in the garage for their temporary home. I also have 19 chicks that we just moved out to their outside coop last week. Can I introduce the ducklings to the chicks and hopefully co-coop them?

It can be done, although not sure you want to brood them together. Ducks are messy with their water and ducklings grow much faster than chicks. My adult ducks share a run and get along well with my chickens, but they have separate coops. Mainly because it was easier for me to do it this way. Ducks basically just need an area to be outta the elements and sleep. Chickens need roosts and nest boxes. You can incorporate both in same coop tho
