Anybody have success with free ranging ducks on a lake or pond? Do they come back to the coop at night? This is our second attempt at raising ducks. We live on a lake with a backyard (but on a cove, not big water) The first ducks basically lived on the lake when they got a taste of it but I think we made a big mistake throwing food in there trying to lure them out. Eventually they stopped coming in our yard completely. Right now these are small and happy with the baby pool and I keep them cooped but I suspect when they get bigger the lake will look very enticing so I won't be able to let them free range in my backyard like the chickens do. Thanks!
