    I have a 8'x18' aviary that i have been working on for a long time now. After all the hard work i think im finally done [​IMG]. It has a 5'x4' concrete pond in it. I am going to be putting some bantam ducks (not sure which yet) in it. The problem is, when i thought i had it predetor proof a few months ago, something took all my birds [​IMG]. Now after fixing all of my mistakes i think its now finally predetor proof. It has welded wire all around, wire on top, and wire laying around the sides. Since i still dont feel good about putting new birds in, i want to put a large rabbit hutch inside the aviary to lock the ducks in at night. How would this work out? The only probem i can think of is rounding up the ducks every single night . Any suggesttions would be helpfull.

    Ducks are really easy to herd, so just locate the hutch, or even a large dog travel crate, in a corner where you can herd them into it. This might be difficult if the hutch is up on legs, lol.
