    I have been interested in ducks for a while now, and I am finally able to get some. However, I am really stumped when it comes to designing the run and housing for them.
    I plan on getting three or four ducks, so I do not really know how much space they need. I also live in the woods. We have foxes, raccoons, owls, coyotes, and hawks, so everything needs to be predator proof. I do not know how determined these animals are, so I would like some suggestions as to what to do to keep them out of my ducks' pen.
    Also, if anyone knows some links to good pen and housing instructions could you post em?

    I think you need to decide what type in order to figure out size and type of housing. I've seen some really nice looking above ground pens with little pools in them that can be drained very easy. I think they were for call ducks so the pen wasn't real big.
