We used to live on a farm where they owners would just let their birds roam free. I think that birds would instinctively flock together or keep to their own?

I've passed many farms where I've seen birds freely occupying the road (which really ticks me off). I don't see any reason why you couldn't let them all run around together.

I wouldnt have a problem with the ducks and geese together but I dont think the chickens will like it. Geese and ducks tend to get their pens wet and moist and love it... where chickens like to scratch through the dry bedding/dirt to find their food.

We used to raise ducks and chickens and just kept them apart, plus we gave the ducks a little pool for them to play in. If you are going to plan on letting them run free then it wont be an issue at all.
