    I got my ducks last spring at my local Fur and Feather. All last year they spent most of their time hanging around the barn and outside of it. However, this year the ducks waddle all over the place. Which leads me to my question: We have a herd of cows and they are kept in by the electric fence so is their any percautions about the fence I should take into consideration?[​IMG]

    Oooh, good question. I use electric fence to keep predators away from the ducks' night pen, so they are never in danger of getting zapped. Sheesh. Seems to me that people keep ducks in those electric mesh fences, but I don't know much more than that.
