Hi all! We built a pond last summer and I am really wanting to put some duckies out there to enjoy it. It's about a 1/2 acre triangular shape and 20 feet deep on the wide end. It's also about 100 yards or more from the house. I travel and I know my DH won't want to round them up at night so I thought if they could roost on an island they'd be safe(r). I am considering 8-10 Welsh Harlequins. Does this sound like a good idea? Anyone else use this strategy? How did you train your young ducks to roost there? I have read the posts here and some other sites on island construction and think I would put a shelter of some sort on it to foil owls/hawks. Thoughts or suggestions?
