    Hi I will be getting two ducklings soon and although they won't be outside for a good few weeks yet I want to get the outside enclosure ready. I've bought one off a local selling site as it was cheap. Once I've got it home it doesn't seem as big as I thought. The run is about 2.3 metres long by 0.79 metres. Would this be an okay house for 2 ducks!? It has a little house on it aswell. They will be able to have the whole of my garden during the day so it's just the evening and night time they will be in there. I could extend it if it's too small. Thanks in advance for any answers x

    Also this is it. If it is okay I was thinking would it be better for the ducks in I put the house on the floor? And I think I will extend the run out a little bit.

    I would put it on the floor. That will be fine for night time but, if you leave them in there much it will get swampy and gross in a hurry. Btw always better to build your own coops. Almost always cheaper and better.
