My two rouens are about six weeks old and have happy, healthy little quacks. I keep them in an enclosed run that shares space with my chicken run, but is separated by a wire fence until they are comfortable co-mingling (they each have their own houses). I let the ducks and chickens free range together, and they all seem to get along. Today, I put the ducks in with my chickens in a large enclosure we use when we can't let them free range, about 28'x18. I set up a pool with a ramp, a few pans of water, their regular waterers and food. The chickens did a little chest bumping with the ducks, but everyone seems to be getting along. My ducks are sitting in a corner panting. They have tons of fresh cool water, and shade, but they aren't making a move for it. Do you think they're just stressed about the chickens, and it's hot (it's in the nineties today)? They don't usually pant, and if they are thirsty, I dont understand why they aren't going for the water. I spray them down with the hose every few hours but I'm still worried. Am I just being an over protective mom?
