Hi all! The last few days I’ve been digging out a pond in my yard in anticipation of getting a trio of Muscovies this year. I’d like to keep them in a duck house on the pond but I’ve read that unlike chickens they may not always return to their house at dusk and I won’t be able to close them in... So in thinking about alternatives, I’m wondering if Muscovies would still use a house if it were 2-3’ above the waters surface without any sort of ramp or ladder and fly up for refuge? I have a solar fencer that I would put on the house and line the underside of the platform with electrified wire to keep raccoons, foxes and dogs from getting up on the platform. The pond will be ~4’ deep at the center so flightless animals wouldn’t be able to push off the bottom and jump onto the platform. I’d like to build something similar to what is pictured below but lifted off the surface of the water 2-3’. Thoughts?
