Although I have chickens, a guinea, Khaki Campbell ducks, Pekin ducks, Indian Runner ducks, and Embden geese, there has been something around here lately that is only going after the Khaki Campbell ducks. The guinea & the ducks & geese free-range all day, the chickens are let out in the afternoons. At nightfall the guinea & the chickens all go into their pens to roost but the ducks & geese hang out in the yard until they're shooed into their houses. Often they'll congregate near their pens. For several weeks now we have been losing Khaki Campbell ducks, one by one. I wasn't sure if it was a predator, or duck hens going off to be broody, or illness. One day I noticed a KC drake who wasn't looking well and watched him go into a corner to lay down. The next morning he was there, dead. I wondered if the other missing ducks had done something similar, found a hidden spot to go to die. We have been searching the yard for feathers or bodies, or even body parts, and have found none. We have been trying to get out at nightfall to put everyone in, but sometimes our activities keep us out until later. The other night we pulled into the driveway at around 9pm to hear the waterfowl quacking & honking & running in a group around to the front yard. Something had obviously spooked them, and sure enough, there was one less KC duck to put away that night. Now this morning I found a duck that had been killed inside her duck house. The sides are 2" square wire, and something reached in through it to grab her. She was just gnawed upon around her neck. We'll be spending time today reinforcing the sides of that house with hardware cloth, and setting all the Hav-a-hart traps with fresh bait. And putting the ducks away by nightfall. We're even going to keep the 2 Pekins in a crate inside overnight, they're my son's absolute favorites. He'd take them to bed if he could. Please pray for success in trapping this predator, and for safety for the flock. Thank you!
