    We are keepin them fenced in until we get the fence completed around our pond.. We want to turn them and the ducks out on it but not until its finished.. We turned 12 ducks out on it last year and they all got ate by coyotes.. hopefully the fence will help...Our pond is 1 acre, there will be plenty for them to forage for in there:)

    did you have somewhere for them to go at night that was safe because i wouldnt think they would be able to get them durring the day [​IMG]
     
  9. I hope you don't have snapping turtles in your pond. They LOVE to eat ducklings and goslings. A really big turtle can pull an adult duck under water and drown it before he eats it.
