Hello everybody! I have two, month old Pekins that I'm moving outside today. I'm looking for suggestions as I really don't want raccoons munching on my little quackers. What I have planned for them is this: a 10 x 10 dog kennel with hardware cloth buried along all the edges as deep as I can and along the edges so nothing can reach into the kennel. I plan to use hardware cloth wired to the top to keep anything from coming in either. I also want to use a lock of some sort so no strange creatures (or people) take advantage of my ducks. My ducks will be located right beside my horse pasture and because hot wire is so readily available, I figure I can run a strand of hot wire around the perimeter of the outside of the pen, about knee high, just for good measure. Another big question I've had is how much am I supposed to feed my ducks? To this point I've kinda just been feeding them as much as they want ( a 16% layer feed). I can't really keep doing that when I'm only to be out taking care of them twice a day. Any suggestions? Any unrelated but helpful advice would also be appreciated!
