    That`s the beauty of living in the Netherlands. We hardly have any predators. At least, not where i live. I think dogs are the biggest predators. There the number one killers over here.
    When you move a little bit more into the country, there might be foxes.
    I`m really glad we don`t have that...

    I think everyone has dogs as the biggest pred. But glad to hear you don't have to contend with others. I had a dear friend who was from the Netherlands, don't remember where and can't ask since she has gone on, but she was there during WW2, and told us some frightful stories. her name was Peternella and she loved animals.

    Peternella, haha, yes, that`s a very old name. There are only a view left, who have experienced WW2.

    LOL... I take it, they are NOT sitting on any eggs & you've tried breaking their brood by locking them out of their favorite spot?? hmmmmm. How about putting them in a kennel w/out any soft mulch? Usually a breeding drake w/knock the broodiness out of them when he gets frustrated enough w/out them. [​IMG]

    Nope not one egg amongst them, I've been a meanie this year and only let their sister hatch, I locked them out one morning last week and they wrecked havoc, chasing everyone all over including my goose, so I finally let them back in, and the drake has tried many times to break them himself. lol I haven't locked them in a kennel without soft bedding only because I couldn't leave them out over night, not sure anything would want to eat the 2 grumps though. oh and I have 2 more in the other duck house, they haven't been at it quite as long but close. I had to really buckle down on my birth control measures this year. Just the girls haven't quite understood . I also had 2 bantam chickens sitting on nothing till a couple days ago, they finally gave up after a couple months.
