Hello, I have a male Khaki Campbell and two females. They have been coming to the barn at night and I close them up so predetors wont get them. They have been doing this since March 2015. For the last 2 nights they have been staying in the pond and wont come back to the barn. Now I can't find their eggs in the morning and I'm worried about predators. Any suggestions on how to get them to start coming to the barn at night again?

Try not feeding them during the day and providing feed in the barn at night.

I've placed the feed inside the coop. My chickens stay in there too, they have been together like that since they were babies. I dont think any animals have gotten into the barn at night to scare them. We did have a bad storm the other night and the ducks haven't come back to the barn since then. I cant seem to find where they are nesting now. They aren't under the dock and they are always in the water when I go out to the pond. Hopefully I'll find the nest soon. When I can afford the wood I'm thinking of building a coop out by the pond and see if I can get them to nest in it.
