hello all, i have a pretty good sized coop - 8x16 x6ft tall. i have 6 metzer golden layer ducks with my chickens. Never owned ducks before these ones... and ive come to learn that ducks are a neurotic bunch... if you look at em wrong they start getting nervous.. pretty loud girls too. anyways, at night a chicken is pretty much plays dead - easy to grab them, move near them, etc. these ducks, if they hear ANYTHING outside the coop they start chattering and moving around making noise. anyways, long story short - it seems like it'd be a decent deterrent to something on the prowl.... raccoon or possum or skunk... or maybe their loud chatter sounds like a dinner bell.... i dunno, any ideas?
