When we hatched our ducklings we were really worried that they wouldn't put themselves to bed at night in the run to keep safe from predators. It took us a few weeks to herd them into the run each night until they got the idea. We thought it was pretty cool when they started to go into the run at night. After a few months we thought it was funny / interesting that they started to climb the ramp to go and sleep on the floor of the raised coop... under the chickens. A few months later we thought it was really funny / weird that one of them would jump up and roost with the chickens!?! Silly duck!
