In the wild, ducks will nest near open water, where there is plenty of food. They will always look for somewhere that provides natural cover, such as a hole in a tree or a site hidden with natural vegetation.

Where should I put my duck nest basket?

Simply place your basket at the water’s edge in dense vegetation above the flood level. If suitable vegetation is unavailable, the baskets can be secured about a metre above water level with strong branches or posts. The nesting basket should be placed outside early in the year because ducks start building their nests in February. Mallards breed from March to around June and normally lay around 10 to 12 eggs.

Other ways you can help ducks and other wildlife is by providing them with plenty of food. We have food available for ducks, swans and geese, made from 100 percent natural ingredients.

When the ducklings hatch, they stay in the nest for around ten hours and then their mother will lead them to water. They will abandon their nest but may continue to use it. Once breeding season is over the duck nest basket can be cleaned ready for the following year. Please note: fixings are not included.
