This is my first time raising ducks (and chickens for that matter). I looked at all the great coop photos, comments and advice here. We have a very large pond (an acre to an acre and a half). My husband is almost finished with the duck house. Initially we have a 10 x 20 x 6' chain link enclosure that the duck house will be in. Part of that enclosure is in the pond so they will be able to swim at will. I am hoping that in 4 to 6 weeks, we will be able to take the enclosure down so that the ducks will have the freedom to use the full pond and roam around the pond but know enough to return to their duck house at night so predators won't get them. We have 55, mostly wooded acres in North Central Arkansas. Thoughts? Advice? Comments?
