    I just recently increased the size of my flock of ducks...I now have four khaki campbells, 1 pekin, and 1 "brown" duck that I am not really sure what she is (very similar to a khaki campbell though)...The flock is currently housed in a 6'x8' chain link dog kennel and seem happy. I want to increase their are to include the kiddie pool that I have and give them more room to roam around in...I do not have much money as I have recently expanded my chicken housing as well...Could you please post any ideas or pics you have that could help me decide a cheap option for increasing the size of the run for my ducks...The are they live in right now is currently covered with a tarp on the top and at least 1/2 of each side so they stay pretty warm and dry...I really need to get this finished quickly so any suggestions as welcomed!

    Quote:It could be a DARK campbell since Mrs campbell did develope other colors than khaki. Why not build them a DAY run with welded wire and a few posts? welded wire is more pricy than it used to be but still relatively cheap. Be sure to leave the door on the kennel so you can lock them down in a secure place when you are't around and of course at night. Sounds like plenty of space for 6 ducks in the kennel.
