    I had read a great post about building duck rafts and putting dog houses on them so the ducks could nest in the middle of the pond and be safe from predators on the shore. One of my 4-H kids is interested in this. They have a big beautiful pond, but the coyotes and fox keep eating all the ducks! I have tried searching, but must be searching for the wrong term or words, because I am not finding it. Anyone remember what it was called or how to find it?

    THANKS!!
