The ducks had so much fun today!
I let them free range for the first time, I had to keep the chickens in the run though. I’m afraid they can fly over the 6′ fence! I’ll have to learn how to clip their wings.
I had reservations about keeping the ducks and the hens together in one house. A lot of information on the google that I came across suggested it wasn’t a good idea. But I didn’t want to have to build two different houses in the back yard, at least not until I tried it this way. I am glad that I did!! They are doing fantastic!! I don’t keep the food or water in their over night. But they are only in their for 10 hours at a time. Every one goes to bed around 8 and up again around 6.
So if you are thinking about keeping both of these birds I recommend that you try it this way!!
The Splash Cochin, Ashleigh, is better friends with the ducks than the other hens!! Haha, they are too silly
