Some of my friends who keep ducks have said theirs ran away. I wanted to get WH this spring and let them free-range around the pond, and maybe in back in the creek. But, am I going to lose my ducks if I do? I could fence the pond and environs instead. Might be safer to keep the flock together, even if I can't put up predator-proof fencing (which really wouldn't be realistic/affordable around the pond).
