How old would you recommend ducks be before you allow them to roam on your lake?
looks like you have adult ducks on your lake right? have you ever had any problems with snapping turtle? they will eat ducklings. also some large fish can eat a duckling so I would wait till they are large enough something hiding in the lake can't eat them... I have read so sad stories on here where snappers have even bitten off a foot of an adult duck. I think it would be hard for me to let my ducks into a large body of water, plus the ariel preds too.
Nope. Not snapping turtles. Just small turtles.
Is it "Your own personal lake"? A lake on your property? }}Don't forget about the wild animals out there (coyotes, raccoons, ect...) if your ducks are alone and too far away from your home. ~Julie
It's our own personal 5 acre lake.
Would you mind telling me what you decided? We have a five acre pond and my ducks and geese are almost 4 weeks old. I'm dying to let them out. The intent is for them to live near the water. I'd love to hear what you decided, and how it went.
