Finished my duck run yesterday and my ducks spent the whole day in it yesterday and there first night out! They are in duck heaven. I had been locking them up at night in the little hutch and letting them run out for an hour or two supervised once or twice a day. Now they can free range in the run and either go in the house or spend time out at night if they want. The run is predator proof. It's roughly 22'x14'. I have the chicken wire going down six inches under the ground all around. We used bird netting on top to enclose it so that no birds of prey can get through. We don't see many has I live in suburbia but I will see some red tail hawks every now and then. Right now we are just using an old sand box my daughter had for the pond. I plan on putting an actually pond in with a drain built in later on in the year. This project ended up being WAY bigger then I thought it would and well I'm spent! So for now they can enjoy the make shift pond. So pictures! I used a back corner that was bare with just a tree. The fencing on the corner helped make this easier. The fence on the property line is double layered as well to keep dogs out! This picture shows the bird netting on top of the run. You can also see the little house we have. I got it for free off the local classifieds. Worked super well to lock them in when they were younger. The make shift little pond: And up close with the ducklings! They are six weeks old as of this picture. WOW they grow big fast! Anyone have an ID on the silver/grey one in front? I have no idea what type of duck it is!
