    Do ducks require to be penned up for a certain amount of time before they can be let free roam to establish "home"? Like chickens or do they just come back from the beginning

    No they don't need to be pened up just make sure they get in every night

    If you are bringing them in from someplace else and it's all new, I would advise penning them for a couple weeks till they know where food and shelter is.
