I'm getting ducks on Wednesday. My hen was killed by a hawk today and that got me wondering, how will my ducks protect themselves, and/or will they be able to? How do ducks protect themselves? Would it be better for me to not clip my mallards wings (i'm getting a mallard, pekin, and a runner) so it can fly away? And if my duck flies away from a hawk will the hawk be able to catch it and will the duck come back?
