Ok I have a question I am curious about. I know everyone says to lock your ducks up in the house at night for protection. If the ducks are in a very protected pen do you still need to lock them in the house or is it best to let them roam in the pen at night? I have had to leave my ducks out over night a couple of times and they did fine even went in a house to lay eggs. Would it be okay to let them all stay out at night as long as they are in the pen and protected.
