So i have a chicken (im told a silkie polish mix) and a duck (pekin). Together since 8 weeks. When they were younger we had them in a coop and etc all was well until animals got in the coop and we let them roam to make a new coop. Well after 48 hrs of roaming they REFUSE to go in anything. So i thought oh they want something big. Gave them my newly rewooded and vented shed. Nope that didnt cut it. To get them in its a game of chase and lock up they hate it. The duck especially. So they sleep on my patio (the duck in his kiddie pool, and the chicken on top this tall wooden storage area where we keep our grilling needs). So what do i do come winter? Do i force them into the shed and chase them every night? The whole time they are anywhere but roaming freely its nothing but noise and my neighbors complain of my guard duck. They say he belongs in a junk yard already because if you walk by he sounds the alarm. Should i bring them into my cement basement at night? I know some people feel negatively about leaving their chicks/ducks out overnight but theyve been doing it since july-ish, we have neighborhood cats who come to drink their water and the duck attacks them if he isnt preoccupied but they never do anything but beg for food drink and leave. They also keep the rats away so im thankful for that.
