I'd really appreciate some advice. One of our ducks has just hatched 8 ducklings and is nesting on our riverbank. She seems very vulnerable - another hatched a duckling a few weeks ago and it was killed within 48 hours (not sure what did this - could it have been our hens?)
Anyway - do I let nature take its course or would it be traumatic for her (she is aggressive at the moment) if I tried to move her up to our large garage and give her stuff to make a nest there? We live in Scotland, and although I havent seen any predators we have lost ducks in the past to foxes and stoats.
Many thanks for any advice.
