    I have a problem getting my call ducks in at night. They do not have a duck house, each evening I lure them in with my chickens, geese and turkeys. It is quite a challenge, often resulting in my DH and myself chasing, capturing them, and putting them into a run. We have a predator problem. I can build a house and float it but I am afraid they my wander onto dry land and be somethings diner! Any suggestions?

    We keep ours in a fenced area, sides and top also.
    Nothing gets out, nothing gets in. peace of mind, and they watch the weather, if it's bad, they go inside on their own.[​IMG]

    Mine are also pened all the time. They are just too small and could be a snack for a number of things both day and night.
