Well, unfortunately, after 3 years of keeping ducks, we lost one to a predator. I have read threads about who leaves/doesn't leave what, and have tried to search forums but am not finding it. What I found this morning was a large circle of feathers with a small area that looks like could have been a pool of blood in the middle. Looked around the area and didn't see any other pieces. Which critter does it sound like? We keep everyone locked up at night, so my best guess is that this duck just didn't go in with everyone else last night at dinner, though I don't know why because he always has. Now I'm paranoid because I don't know if it happened yesterday during the day and i didn't notice when we were putting them to bed, so concerned if it was daytime it could happen again. Making matters worse, it's my daughter's pet drake. Not looking forward to tell her later today.
