    I went out one morning and all but one of my BEi ducks were gone!! no signs of them no feathers parts or anything any where around could they have flown away? The next day the last one had left as well. I've been everywhere and put up lost duck messages. I miss my ducks terribly!! Crystal

    Maybe a dumb question, but did they fly south? Or were drawn to another pond by the sounds of other ducks? Also, what are BEi?

    Are they penned ? Maybe a predator got them ?

    Thats what I was wondering, they were free range. Black east Indy. I looked at all the ponds around but am pretty close to a lake. I just hope they come back!! Crystal

    Any wooded area nearby? This is a pretty common raccoon scenario. I was wiped out--they'd carry off ten a night. Took days of scouring the woods to find duck parts.
