So, I currently raise poultry. My coop is a very large room off my garage/barn and is on the same side as my 1 acre pond only about 25 feet from it. My chickens free range most of the time as I have 13 acres and I would like the same for my future possible ducks. I want them to be able to swim around in my pond when they want. It is not fenced in. Is this possible or just a pipe dream? Is this a dream set-up or a recipe for disaster? Stewing on this but I thought this might be a good place to get some advice. They will all end up in the same coop area at night to rest. I will let them out every am. My coop room is a cement floor and is always dry due to the deep litter method I use. I am hopeful they can hang together with the chickens at night without needing a separate shelter for the ducks. Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond!
