Hi everyone, I'm new here and desperately need some help. I now have two ducklings ( a Pekin and a Khaki Campbell I believe) about 2.5-3 wks old I think. A quick back story is-I brought up the subject of getting a couple chickens for pest control on our tiny 40x50 backyard orchard. I hadn't planned anything, was just an idea and being the loving husband that he is my other half surprised me with ordering 3 chicks (will be here Sunday) and...2 ducks. My mom has chickens so I can get a lot of help from her in that department but I'm at a complete loss as to what to do with the ducks once they are outside. My questions are can we successfully have them in that small space, with the three chickens? Also, Hawks are a concern so I don't know if I can let them free range even in the fenced area during the day alone. We can make them a run but it wouldn't be able to be very big and it would have to be narrow and long, but I have no clue as to what to put on the ground. If it's not moveable it will just turn to dirt right? I'm so stressed out trying to think about how we will keep them in such a small area without it being a muddy poopy mess. And i've heard pea gravel can cause bramble foot. I'm willing to put in the work (my 3 year old has fallen in love with them) but I'm just so concerned about the space and potential mess. Is there anyone with experience keeping ducks in a smaller space/run that can offer any advice?
