    So I was going to put my ducks in a house on our island but have changed that to a floating duck house. I think predators would be less likely to bother them and I wont have to go out every morning and evening to open and close the pen.

    We have a floating live well that we were thinking about filling with foam and building a house on top. Do you think they will use it? If I pen them with it on the island for a week or so do you think they would learn that as home and then swim to it and climb up? Also both of my ducks are boys so egg collection at this point is not an issue. Cleaning is an issue so we were going to anchor and then attach a rope or chain to pull to shore and clean. Thoughts? Ideas?
