My husband is about %90 done with out duck coop and we're also %90 ready to have them be outdoor ducks, but we have to wait till the weather gets warm at night for 24/7 outside ducks. Until than I plan on bringing them back inside before dark! My question is when they are finally %100 ready to stay outside should I build a door on the coop to lock them up at night from predators or build a small run with a closing door so they can still come outside at night? I plan on letting them free range threw out the day, but until they are %100 I'm gonna make a temp chicken wire fence so it's easier to bring them in at night. I'm really scared to let them be free rangers, but I really want them to enjoy our land and pond freely... it's just scarey to think of loosing one or more of them. Any tips, ideas, help?!
