    We will have a small coop/run area for our 2 soon to be ducklings, but I am wondering if anyone has had luck getting their ducks to use a floating house for the evening.

    I am not sure we will be able to shoo them in from the pond each night and would like to have a safe option if they refuse to come in at night. We have a fenced yard, but I know that doesn't eliminate predator threats by any means. Our chickens are locked up like Ft Knox every night, but they put themselves to bed like good little chickens.

    Anyone have any luck with the floating house idea? Any tips or suggestions to make a sturdy one?
