i'm planning on getting ducks in the next few months so i'm thinking about where to set them up on the farm. we've got a 2 acre pond but it's FULL of snapping turtles who have an overwhelming tendency to eat the ducklings. they don't bother the wild goslings (we've seen geese actually fight the turtles for their babies and win, so maybe that's why) but every time my father tried to keep ducks as a child they were eaten almost instantly upon reaching the pond. we have noticed lately, however, that a couple of wild ducks are raising their ducklings down on the creek until they are big enough that the turtles leave them alone, and then happily moving up to the pond. i was wondering if anyone has tried to raise their domestic ducks on a creek before? i've got a lovely spot on one of the creeks that i can easily set up a large fenced area around, but i don't know if this will work in the long run. any ideas or experiences?
