From June to September, my 2 ducks were in a temporary enclosure that just consisted of their large duck house and a small pen. If not outside in the pen,they were sleeping in the house. Now they are in a huge run, shared with chickens. And now I have 3 ducks. But I have noticed they are never in the house, (the house stays clean and dry inside). 2 weeks ago at lunch I did see the one duck inside but thats it. today I snuck back to check everyone out and I saw them sleeping outside by the water. Is this what ducks do? Is it because the run is bigger that they don't go into their house?

I noticed there was a similar post like mine, except in my case, the ducks used to go in their house before I put it in the run. So its not a new house. And I did see the one duck in there 2 weeks ago. But just that once.

I think they just like being out in the open. Some nights mine go in with the chickens, other nights they would rather sleep in their pool, but I make them go in the coop.
