the house i moved into has a garden and a pretty sturdy fence. during the weekdays, i leave for college and my parents go to work and no one is home. we have two other pets who stay outside: an ancient dog and a young siamese cat. is it okay to allow my ducks to walk around the garden when the humans are away? i hope my cat will be able protect them. this is the first time i have lived in a suburban setting since 7 years ago and i don't know what kind of predators are around. raccoons come out at night so they will be in their shed during dark. the fence is sturdy so i don't think foxes will be a problem where i live. that just leaves neighborhood pets and falcons.
