building a mallard duck nesting house   ...

A mallard duck nesting house is sometimes necessary, especially if you own a farm and the ducks are wandering into your hen house and laying their eggs.  Another good reason to build a special mallard duck nesting house is to keep them away from the pond or lake shores where their predators such as raccoons or skunks looking for their eggs.  This is one way you can help with the persistence of the species.

To build a mallard duck nesting house all you really  need is light wire fencing and some hay.  Remember to cut a doorway in the wire about the size of a duck.  Then simply roll the fencing into a tube or a cone and compress the insides with hay.  These duck houses then can be placed near a shoreline.
