Broody duck sitting on eggs - needs a proper enclosure


6 Years
Apr 23, 2013
Hello everyone

I have my lovely Magpie Duck 'Dot' sitting on six eggs at the moment. Last year she hatched a baby but it was very quickly taken by a predator. She and her husband 'Len' free range around our garden with the hens at present. I really would like to keep her and her (potential) babies contained to protect them from the same fate this year. Is this something anyone has experience with? How much space should I give them considering they are used to free ranging? When can I move her/them? HELP!! xx
