    i have been letting my flocks rome all summer without a hitch. i have 15 chickens 2 roosters and 2 khakis. and i came home from work and they always come running for feed but the ducks are missing today. I would think they would have gotten taken by and animal but i cant believe both of them did. i want to cry :( I am waiting til dark to see i hope they come back.

    any advice please

    Some Khakis can fly have you seen yours fly? and is there any ponds or lakes or rivers close by? Coyotes working together could take both. very sorry to say. and when you say roam what do you mean? like a neighborhood ? roaming dogs are bad for killing ducks too.

    I just lost 2 female WH to a hawk. I found a hawk feather by some duck feathers. Not on the same day though. You might be lucky they might be setting on eggs.
