And when I let them all 24 out they where all in a little huddle hanging in the grass spot where the garden was which on 2 sides has concrete and behind it is my dads wall of his stuff. Well I would take the oldest one (duckie) out for walks along with one of the yellow ones. Well after I left my dad had come home and noticed they were gone, and he went looking for them and found them down at the pond!!!! Which isnt exactly close to the house... How can I let them out with out worrying that they will do this again? Should i leave duckie (the suspected ring leader) inside while they are out until they get bigger because their ages are from march 23 on.. the yougest is about a week and a half old so hes still pretty small.. Whats your ideas?"?? Dangers at the pond: *Aggressive male female is nesting *Its wide open for possible birds of prey *People walk by and take/shoot/injure them *Drowing..... This is the open field they had to walk through... (those birds are baby canadian geese from last year) This is the rest of the field they had to cross to get to the pond (All of that overflow isnt there anymore and the pond is actually getting low already ) Also the pond isnt exactly small and the goose sits to the right of that bench which is right where the babies had gone, thank god the male didnt hurt them. Anyone else run into something like this??
