Growing ducks and geese on ponds

Extensive breeding of ducks and geese on fishponds requires little investment. The duck and the geese are kept on the water during the day, while closing at night in the canopies. Canopies can be on the shore, or on the water. They are protected from predators such as foxes.

 On one hectare of ponds it is possible to grow 300 to 500 ducks, or one hundred geese. Ducks and geese are fed with herbs and frogs, and their feces shed a pond, and fish and fish eat. Ducks and geese can be placed on a raft or by the shore.

In this way the yield of fish on the pond increases to 30%.

The raft is usually made of wood that rusts and needs to be maintained. In addition, ducks and geese need to be let go into the water every morning and locked each evening.

The whole procedure could be considerably simplified.

Instead of great raft, it is possible to make a lot of small raft. And there is a nest on each raft.

A small raft can be made of 5-10 empty plastic bottles connected to the circuit.

Beams and straw thicknesses up to 10 centimeters are placed on this raft. On a raft, geese and ducks can easily pop up. There on raft can be eggs, and young ducks or geese. Small ducks and geese can also easily climb this floating nest. Since the nest on the water, te nest does not reach foxes.

In addition, floating nests make shade for fish.

Fish under the nest can hide from birds, such as cormorants who eat fish.

One family duck have up to 6 females and 1 male. Therefore nests should be arranged in groups up to 6 pieces.

Each nest is easily anchored in one place using a small anchor. As an anchor, pieces of iron, bricks, larger pieces of stone, or pieces of concrete can be used. When hunting a fish it is easy to move by removing anchors and pulling nests on the shore.
