    Im headed to the feed store today to get another heat lamp. Right now we have the ducklings in with the chicks, but through watching them lastnight the ducks were running all over the chicks so I have decided to put them in a seperate brooder. Im nervous they will hurt the chicks as they are a slight bit bigger..

    Has anyone kept their ducklings & chicks together in the brooder before?

    I have kept ducklings, poults, goslings and chicks together before. Ducklings tend to be a little hyperactive, and if you have the means to separate them, your chicks will probably thank you.
