Hi everyone, we are going to be getting some Welsh Harlequin ducklings and baby chickens soon and I have a few questions about them being free range during the day when they are older. Are there any daytime predators that go after ducks and chickens? (I live in Georgia.) Would they lay eggs all over the yard, or in their nesting boxes? I want the ducks and chickens to breed, and lay eggs for eating, so would I have to candle the eggs all the time? Do they know if there is babies inside their eggs? Will the mother ducks and chickens keep their babies safe from hawks, and other daytime predators? Thanks in advance for any information.
