Hello all! This is a question I'm posing for my mom. I just received my first Ancona ducklings. Being as they are so incredibly cute my mom was interested in taking a pair of ours. We have our nice secure well researched duck habitat however she has a completely different situation and I was hoping for some ideas on housing issues and if it would even be feasible. She lives on a 40 acre farm in the middle of the mountains she has a decently large pond in her horse field. Obviously would be great for a set of ducks the problem is predators. How do you keep ducks safe on a pond? She cant fence the whole pond in b/c the horses use it. So how would you provide a safe place for the ducks? I know she doesnt want a lot of upkeep with them ie letting them in and out every am/pm. The only main predator I'd be worried about are dogs. She has quite a few that are use to running/hunting in the surrounding woods. All suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks so much!
