    My friend is thinking about ducks but they dont know what to do... and neither do I. . . My friend will have some haybales and boards to make a shelter, they have a large pond, and they also have a dog that will eat anything if it can get them. The dog is fat and slow and very old but is it still a problem??? the shelter would be beside the pond. Will they sleep on the pond or in the shelter??? There are also alot of feilds around. Will there be many predaters trying to get them??? And I would like to know if the ducks woud be fine overal???

    Some ducks are pretty resourceful.

    If you don't want predators to get them, they need to be locked up.

    I don't know of any ducks that would sleep on the water.
