  Our ducks free range on pasture but we have llamas and donkeys on the farm also who act as guards to protect them. It is a mutually benefitial situation....the ducks eat snails and slugs that carry meningeal worms that kill llamas and the llamas keep predators out of the pasture that eat ducks! We supplement with corn when the weather is cold. We also have a small pond for the ducks, but they did fine with a small child's swimming pool before we built the pond.

  Oh boy...now that's some cold weather...LOL

I bet our son's pregnant sow would love to be knee deep in snow instead of fighting off 90 plus heat.
