    I am building a new duck house and enclosure for my new ducks and would like to build it near my existing pond and want to fence part of the pond in for them. My pond is to big to fence in the whole thing so I only want to do part of it. Has anyone ever done this ? How did you do it and what worked best as far as type of fencing. Years ago I saw where some people did it but it looked like they basically lowered a dog type kennel into the water off the bank but I wanted to be able to give them a decent amount of room but not break the bank either.

    I have read about people fencing an area of a pond... Some considerations are that ducks can dive under things - I don't know how deep.

    I have also had a couple of ducks get their heads stuck in 2"x3" woven wire fence, so that would be a nightmare of mine - to have a duck get trapped by the underwater section of fence. So selecting the material would be really important.
