    Well built pens or sheer luck which will run out one day. The last person who posted about no predator problems jinxed himself and lost several ducks in a short period of time. Hope your luck stays good.

    We have put our game camera out all around our home and coop which is close together, and so far the only thing we have pictures of are the birds that come in the morning looking for food. I think our 4 dogs contribute to the lack of predators around here.
