I've got a lovely flock of chickens and would like to branch out to ducks. I'm considering Runner Ducks or Muscovies. I don't know as much about ducks as chickens and am hoping for advice. I just moved to a home with a large pond. Lots of wild ducks and geese stop by everyday. I want to start raising my own ducks. First, can anyone provide advice on duck enclosures? I've heard that if I let them out onto the pond that they are likely to get snatched up by a hawk. IS that true? If I build them a little place to live and let them out during the day, will they come back at night the way my chickens do? BYC has excellent pictures of chicken coops. Can anyone point me towards a good resource for duck enclosures/coops? I've heard that hatching duck eggs is harder than hatching chicken eggs. Is that true? Thank you so much!! Any advice will be greatly appreciated!!
