If i make A duck House and Put it in my garden will they go in by them selves?
Likely not. For the first week or so you'll need to show them the way before they'll make it a habit.
If you put them on lock down for a couple days and feed them in their coop I think they'd come back each night ....I have Embden Geese and some muscovy's that do it ... When I feed them I call duck duck goose and so when I want them in earlier they come running . I only put down their food at night and they have a yard to go outside to get water . If I left food down all day the chickens would eat it because the ducks/geese dont come back during the day only if there broody and laying on eggs.
but the one im making doesnt have a door should i put a door?
I would .....because of predators ...coons,fox's etc.....
Just read your post again ... are you going to have plants in this garden ?....because they'll destroy them depending on there mood ..lol ! they like to try anything ...
or walk over any plants .....
the house that i will be building is just small like 3 rulers by 3 should i still put a a door would they be crowded they are 4 ducks
You have to put a door on, dear. You want them to be safe, don't you?
No the door shouldnt interfere. Mine opens up towards me . They should have alot ventalation also ...
Look at this thread for ideas...
