Well, I always thought that ducks could see at night. After we have let our ducks stay out of the pen for the last couple of nights I realized they can't see any better then I can and I don't see that well at night. I was trying to coax them in to there new little house by our pond for them and Cocoa our female kept trying to bite all over my hand she couldn't see the pees in my hand. I turned on our decorative lights around our porch and then she could see them. She tried chashing a cocheroch (sp) and once it ran into the dark she lost it. I told my hubby that is probably were they got that expresion "like a sitting duck". Neither one of my ducks can see well at night. Are all ducks like this?
