    I was wondering should I use a raised pen for my call ducks or should I use a pen on the ground, Thanks

    It's done both ways, mine are on the ground. Frankly, given the enjoyment they get from foraging and digging holes and general running about, i would recommend ground if it's doable.

    I keep 4 in a 10x10 chain link dog run, with a 40GAL trough and a few smaller pools as i have one who is still to young to fly into the big trough, i even planted small trees in there lol They are so small, while there is plenty of mud they also still have grass and i doubt will ever completely eliminate it.
