If my ducklings (3 weeks) are out during the daytime in an electric fence enclosure, are they at risk being taken by overhead birds etc? Please help! As they are making such a mess in their tiny caged/pen area and they would love to have more room to roam. They would be Locked up before dusk. Thank you for your help...

It's possible. I don't know how bad they are where you live, but I worry about it too. We have so many hawks flying around where I live. Do your ducks have anywhere to go for cover? Trees or anything? My ducks are very much more observant than my chickens. They even run for cover if a helicopter/plane/balloon flies over. Lol. The chickens don't care one bit, but the ducks aren't taking any chances!
