Hi there, I have 2 quite large ponds on my property and I am having a terrible time trying to keep myself from getting ducks. Here are my issues. We have wild ducks that have their beautiful little families here each spring. I would be crushed if we somehow disrupted things for them. Will the wild ducks be bothered by domestics? If there is even a chance, I can't risk it. Issue #2 is predators. I lost 2 chickens and my sweet Rooster to Racoons! My chickens are getting a new heavy duty coop and serious fencing this spring. The ducks would need to get to the pond, and then I understand that they won't always come back into their house at dusk. How do you keep them safe? I have been asked to have my broody hen hatch some duck eggs, so I think it may be a sign. I just have to figure out these problems before I can move ahead. Thanks!
