    Hi everyone my husband and I are collecting 2 campbell ducklings next weekend and are going to order the house and run tonight but need advice.
    We've found a guinea pig house and run enclosure 190 cm long in total 55cm in height and wondered if this might be suitable?

    Hello & Welcome! [​IMG] My 'go to' book for ducks is Holderreads 'raising ducks'. Khakis' are considered to be a lightweight breed and as such, will need about 2 sq. ft/bird - hut need not be taller than 3ft, although collecting eggs on your knees in mud is no fun! [​IMG] Not sure how that works out in cms - I think your cm height works out to be a bit under 2ft??? It will suffice for ducklings and if you only intend to keep 2 ducks they may get along in those quarters just fine. Hope this helps a bit, good luck [​IMG]
