    After a months work I have almost finished my avarai for my ducks. I build a concrete duck pond (this works because I am from belguim). The pond is 5 meters wide and 10 long and the aviary is 14 meters wide and 24 long. This weekend I will be getting the ducks. Also I bought 9 concrete nesting boxes.

    I hate to say yes but yes I thank it will be like a pig pen. You might put sod down or some thing. The ducks will splash and bring water out every time they go out.
    And with my ducks they carry mud and dirt into their pond. So the pond may get less deep with the mud and dirt in it. Do you have a drain and/or a pump???
