I'm clearing out some land in our back yard that is currently all wooded. I plan on making this my duck area. How big should I make it? Right now, I have cleared 30 ft across, but not sure how deep to make it? What would a good size be? I want to make like a man made pond back there for them. This is the right side, I want to use that tree as the ending - That pile near the tree is the beginning of our compost pile, We moved that to the right of the tree, so that is no longer there...... That is my 7 y/o daughter helping me This is the left side, I have cleared a little past that tree - There is 30 feet between both ends How far back should I aim for? I'm not sure how many ducks we will end up with before we are done, but right now we have 6 eggs in the incubator and I want to get more.
