I am going to have a mixed flock of ducks and chickens. I'm building a pond for the ducks...should I provide a different water thing for the chickens? Or will they go and drink out of the pond? Some say having a pond with chickens is dangerous because they'll drown and others post pictures of their chickens swimming in their backyard swimming pool! So what's the answer? Do I need to keep the ducks totally separate I don't really want to. Also should the food be inside or outside - I don't know whether the answer is different for ducks and chickens. They will have a large pen but not be free range.
