    When would it be safe to introduce chicks and ducklings who are currently four weeks old to chicks and ducks who are currently 9 weeks old? I have 8 of the older ducks and 37 of the older chicks, and 5 and 7 young ducks and chicks, respectively. The sooner they can all be together the better; less work!

    most of the replies to this type of question say "when they are about the same size" it sounds like theres only a few weeks between them. maybe you could supervise some together time and see how everyone responds....
