    Sorry for your loss call ducks and thanks for the warning.
    Everything I've read says you're better off brooding ducks away from chicks. Ducks just like to get wet too much and water (chilling) can be deadly to chicks.

    Aww, I'm sorry. I've had one of my chicks pass and it was so sad. Even when I was prepared to lose at least one, it is still a hard thing.

    Quote:Yup, I agree. I've lost too many chicks to ducklings mess/cold/dampness to ever try to brood chicks and ducklings together again.

    I'm sorry you lost one. [​IMG]
