Hi Everyone! As some may know, I have 4 drakes. 2 Pekins and 2 runners. This is their first summer all together. Last winter when everyone got along, they lived in their large house. Since it's breeding season, they fight. Pekin vs runner. The pekin usually win. The run is divided so they can see and not touch. I'm wondering if now that it's warmer out, is it ok for them to just be inside their run, and not in their houses. The run is covered in hardware cloth, and there's a skirt of pavers around it. I'm wondering if them being exposed will attract predators. I live in New England and my neighborhood borders a wooded area, and a large nature reserve. We have raccoons, skunks, foxes, coyote (hear them never seen them) and I believe a fisher cat. I know the ducks prefer outside, they once would not go in for the duck sitter once and were out in a blizzard.
