    I know it may seem like in getting slot of ducks lately but Im just trying to perfect my flock. Now I'm wondering, should I save up to get another chainlink kennel put up? Or should I get some more Runners? I want the cage but I kinda need the runners for next year.

    Why do you need runners? How many ducks do you have? How big is the run they have now? Not realy sure what u mean by "trying to perfect my flock"

    Go with the kennel. More space is always better for the birds.

    Don't get birds if you don't have a safe place to keep them.

    You never need to buy birds "RIGHT NOW!". There are always birds to be purchased. Get your facilities ready first, then get birds.

    PS: if you have found better birds and are trying to perfect your flock, re-home some of the earlier birds that are no longer what you want in your flock. You can get yourself into a sticky situation if you allow the flock to get larger than you can afford to take care of.

    I never thought about some of those points. I think I'm going to get some bigger facilities and then 2 more runner gals for my male.
