I'm getting my very first small flock of ducks.. 6 black cayugas.. soon. I'll be raising them with my new chicks coming in at the same time. I wondered how much bigger are the duckling and will I have to build a second brooder for the ducklings? Also, we are in the process of building a second coop for our new flux of birds... I heard ducks like to try and sleep outside at night. Here in Alaska, we have to lockdown our animals with buried fencing, electricity, and wire/string up top to keep out predators at night. During the day I keep a shotgun outside with me.. and usually bears only come through if they don't know I'm around or at night. SO, am I going to be chasing these ducks in every night? I'm especially afraid coyotes/wolves will get them if they sleep under a tree as I read somewhere!
