We got our first call ducks at the Victorville Poultry Show earlier this month. We have runners and they just roam the property and get locked in thier house at night. But these little guys needed thier own space. So I whipped this up ALONE in 2 days. (DH is on Toys For Tots duty at work, we'll see him again after the holidays!) So here it is I started with the sides of some wooden shipping crates and formed the base 7x7 feet Framed it out Covered it in wire mesh and shade cloth on the top Added a tiny pond and then the ducks! There is a little house for them to go into, but I have not really seen them use it. But, they love the pond. Is it big enough? Do they need anything else? they seem to be doing well.
