    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] If they are not tame I think you should put food and water for them, so they can get a bite to eat and a drink so long and watch them to see where they sleep at night. It will be easier to catch them then. The duck owners here can help you and give you some more advice. You'll find them here:

    Good luck!

    X2 on what sumi said. I agree with your - predators will get them on a frozen pond and quickly! Good luck to you!
