    Congrats. Good for you. I had mine initially in brooder, then in an enclosed run with the ducks, and that is where their roost is. I free range them 3-4 days out of the week, sometimes more in the evenings but now that it is getting dark so early again, less in the evening.

    Until last night, they all scurried into the run at dusk. Last night, I had to shoo them off the top of the covered run with a broom and a shovel! So, be aware, they are sneaky little guys! Have fun, they are fun to watch as they free range.
