My husband just bought two Pekin ducklings that he plans to have live out at our pond (approx. 50 x 150'). Right next to the pond is an old sheet metal barn tat we thought would be good housing for them. I don't want predators to get them and was thinking about adding some tall fencing from the back of the barn that runs into the pond (so that a predator would have to swim into the pond to get into their yard, but the ducks could still run around free). The barn would also need some securing at the bottom because an animal could quite easily dig under as the floor is dirt. My question is - is this a good idea, or is it likely that predators will get them anyways? With the pond and the barn right next to it (within 30 feet or so of the pond) - what would be a good setup where we could utilize the barn that is already there? Any advice is appreciated as I want to keep them safe but be able to enjoy the pond!
