Greetings from Kansas, carmengirl, and ! Pleased you joined our community! BYC is a great place to learn. My one bit advice is raise the chicks and ducklings in separate brooders - the ducks are very messy with their water & will wet the bedding of the chicks which isn't good for them. Make sure you visit the duck thread as well as the baby chicks thread. They are Q & A but reading the old threads yields valuable info! Your first stop should be the Learning Center - it will give you the knowledge you need to raise a happy & Healthy flock.
