    I have 11 chickens and want to inroduce a duck or two is there a duck breed suited to this situation? I think people seem to like the peking breed and they are easy to aquire.
    Is duck poop worse than chick poop? Is there any reason they cant share the coop?

    one of the reason is water... water fowl will foul your chicken water in no time.
