    Hey guys. So I have a Peking a Swedish and a Runner duck. If I built them a pen with a pond in it is 8x8 big enough for the 3 of them. Thanks [​IMG]

    Well I am NOT an expert at all but I have been told that ducks need about 10 sq. ft. per bird in a run. You have 3 so you would need at least 30 and if you have them in a 8 x 8 run that would be 64 sq.ft. So I would say that is plenty!!! Again I am no expert and I hope someone else will chime in for you!

    I've got 5 magpie 2 mystery buff ducks a muscovy sitting on eggs (i'm thinking may be duds-need to shoo her away and candle) and getting probably 4 runners from Iamcuriositycat this weekend. [​IMG] I can NOT say no to a new breed I have been interested in. I've never had Runners and always thought they were interesting...NOW I am getting me some! (I dont need more, but what the hey!)

    Get some more! You know you want to!!!!!
