    Was wondering-what would be the most predator proof duck. two considerations as far as interest would be Welsh Harlequinn or white crested. Nice sized with aerator, self feeder=Pond with swans, variety of geese and ducks. problems with losses to raccoons and fox. probably limit to males to avoid "sitting ducks" on eggs. Any recomendations? Thanks in advance.

    It really depends on your setup for the ducks. I know Muscovies are good fighters though. With any duck you decide on, you will need the proper setup, with a predator proof enclosure.
