I plan on getting two ducks soon. A lot of my friends have ducks of their own and one of them doesn't have an area to keep his duck and brings it in his house every night, but the others basically let their ducks have free range in their enclosure. And I have heard there are some pretty dangerous animals that have been let loose around where I live and it makes me kind of worried to put my ducks sort of out in the open where the animals could see them. But I was wondering, could you put your ducks in their duck house at night?

Ducks, all the ducks I have ever had anyway, put themselves in at night. As soon as it gets dusk out, they waddle towards their enclosure and it is just my job to go out and shut the door to keep out predators. Another great thing is, if you can refrain from letting them out before 8 AM, they will lay their eggs inside the enclosure. Ducks lay their eggs from 6-8AM and so you don't have to run around and try and find where they have laid them.

I think you will like having ducks. I prefer their silly antics over our chickens, and only have the chickens because we like their eggs better than duck eggs. However, duck eggs sell better (and for higher prices).
