I have 5 Ducks. They have been out in the run daily for several weeks.
Yesterday they came out of the run in the backyard. Well I got 4 of them in last night.
Couldn't get the last one. She stayed out all night.
I was very worried, couldn't sleep, Drove my husband NUTS.
This morning she's back.

How do I get her back with the rest? She fly's off.


This is driving me crazy. I hate this.
And its raining.

With a long broomstick attached to the net lay it on the ground put some feed in the center and wait for Donald to feed. then you are far enough away, just lift the net and WA LA, sitting duck.

I know I have a lot of fun trying to catch my 4 inside the fence without anyone getting hurt. I wish you lots and lots of luck catching them outside the fence. They are all so very scared of everyone here.

Mine are stubborn some nights and roost on top of the pen. Most nights scratch feed will lure them into their pen for the night. I have a couple that are more skiddish than the rest and they require me to move away from the door and let them go at there own pace.
i stopped worrying about them much. if they don't want in, there's nothing you can do.
