We purchased two tiny Pekin ducks a couple of months ago and raised them primarily inside until they got big enough and it was warm enough to let them spend time outside. We do live on a small spring-fed lake, which is why we decided to get them, and now they never want to come to their coop! Also, they have made friends with the Canadian geese and mallards and tend to follow them around more than anything. We have a terrible time getting them to the coop at night and have let them spend the night on the lake several times, but i'm wondering... is this okay? It seems to be what they want, but from everything I've read they should be sleeping in their coop. Not sure what the right thing to do here is? Has anyone else had this problem?
