Hello friends, I am a new duck owner. I bought 4 ducklings one year ago and they are living happily with my chickens in their coop. However we have sold our house and will be moving this summer. I will sadly be leaving my chickens and their coop, but we have purchased property with a pond and will be building a house there. Can I take my ducks to the pond and have them live safely there before the house is built? They have lived their whole lives in our yard and spent every night in the coop with the chickens. With this plan they will be "outside" all the time. Is this safe? Is this a dumb question?? I mean ducks live in ponds and on lakes everywhere. Are they smart enough to evade predators at night etc...?? Thanks in advance for the input!
