Hi, I had a dozen chickens, some that I raised as chicks and others that were given to me. I let them have free range around my 2 acre woody yard; however after a short time they would roam around across the street at the neighbors house who didn't mind them except that they were tearing up her lawn that she works very hard on. As I looked down the hill of my front lawn, I noticed that a third of our yard was all dirt from them. Shortly after getting the chickens I got some baby ducks. And a Peking. I intergrated them into the coop with the chickens and most of the time they were fine. So, after thinking it over we found a good home for the chickens. That was this past May, and since then the ducks have found the pond on the other side of our house a little bit out in the woods. Now, and since then they only come over to eat, more now because it's colder out. They have not used the coop since the chickens left. I did once get them into the fenced in area around their coop, but the 2 Muschovies just flew away, and the pekin just walked around quacking trying to get out. I know that there wings can be clipped, I don't know how because they flutter and their claws are so sharp. I don't want to use netting because I'd feel bad if they couldn't go to the pond. So there ya go.....its getting cold out and they're going to need shelter. I'm up in New Hampshire and it's cold already! Does anyone have any ideas? Thoughts?
