    Does anyone with a natural pond have a shelter that is predator safe yet has access to the water?? I guess I'm asking to SEE the arrangements people with natural ponds have made for their ducks. So photos would be most appreciated. THANK YOU

    we have a small pond with a good distance between it and the duck coop. We kept them penned up till they were fully feathered then let the coop open to the pond day and night. The area is fenced in and has electric wire running along the top and bottom of the 4 ft high fence to keep out predators.

    Does anyone else have photos of this too? We have a natural pond and I was curious to see what others have done with coops connecting to ponds. Or if they don't because they had problems with predators in the ponds...
