In the Brooder

I am hoping I can get some advice on the best place to build a duck coop. I have a natural 1 acre pond on my property and I was thinking that I would place it there so that the ducks could spend the day swimming and foraging. I am a little worried tho because it is wooded around the pond and we get a lot of wildlife (think raccoons, foxes, and bears oh my!). Also, we have two Canada geese nesting at the pond and I wasn't sure it they would cause problems with a small flock of ducks. Third, I've heard that if you let your ducks feed out of a natural water source such as a pond it can make their eggs taste 'fishy'. I'd appreciate any advice you could give, I'm really new to this. Thank you!
