In the Brooder

Hi I had posted about one of my ducks going missing a little while back and I had never found out who or what the culprit was. In the last 2 weeks we have been seeing a bald eagle circling around our neighborhood and I thought, maybe he was the problem. Today confirmed it when I went outside and couldn't find my ducks, well they were okay, they were just in their house (they are never in their duck house unless it's nighttime) then I saw movement and the bald eagle was perched in a tree about 25 feet above my head! He took off but i believe he was waiting for my guys to come out so he could snatch them. My question is, how do you protect them from these predators, they live in a fenced in backyard which keeps out raccoons, stray dogs and the like, but what about these aerial killers? Is their any chance for them?
