I have 6 female Runner Ducklings coming next month! I had chickens a few years back but unfortunately what I thought was raccoons that killed all of them turned out to be my MIL's German Shepard. Her dog passed a few years ago now and we've done a lot of landscaping to our yard since with more fencing, trees for shelter and a pond. I'm almost done building the new duck coop and I'm gathering supplies to prepare for the ducklings now. I love how much info is here and already any questions I've had have been previously answered and easy to find. Thank-you all for sharing your wisdom!!
