Duck Run Space

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, I really want to get some blue Swedish ducks however, I do not know how much run space they need. Please could anyone tell me as the amount of Ducks I get will depend on how much space they need.

Most say 10 sq feet per bird but different factors will affect this. If you plan on letting them free range for a good part of the day you could get away with a little less. If you get Jumbo Pekin you'll need more space. If you get Mallards a little less is ok. But generally 10 sq ft is a good number to shoot for.
