I posted this in predators & pests too, but wanted to tap the knowledge of fellow duck lovers too. I was just watching my goats and ducks in the yard today and noticing how well they get along. And also thinking about how much better goats are at defending themselves from predators and I thought: If I housed them together, would the goats add an extra layer of discouragement/protection to the ducks? I would still, of course, make sure the pen was as predator-proof as possible. I also know I would have to put the goat's water up where the ducks couldn't reach it, because the goats really like their water clean. And the feeding, which I do twice a day, would have to be separate. Can anyone think of any other considerations, or good reasons *not* to do it? And what do you think of the predator protection potential? Thanks!
