In the Brooder
- Apr 8, 2021
I own 7 hens and 1 rooster, I recently decided to buy ducks 4 days ago. They are Pekin ducks and are 3 weeks old exept for one of the ducks which is 1 week. I was wondering when would be a good time to mix them with my chickens. I have 6 Barred Rock hens and 1 Easter Egger. My rooster is a Barred Rock just like my 6 hens. My hens and rooster are 20 weeks old and my Easter Egger is 18 weeks old. The chickens haven't really interacted with the ducks yet. They are both in there own separate enclosures but the plan was to move the ducks to the chickens enclousure. Keep in mind that the chickens will not share there coop with the ducks. The ducks have there own separate home. But my main question is when will I be able to mix the ducks with the chickens.
