Hi there! Someone dropped off several ducklings at my parent's house (not uncommon - they have an acre lake on their property and people think, "oh! Ducks like lakes lets leave them here") but this time they dropped off 3 Pekins and a brown duck. Usually, with the wild mallards, we just help raise them and let them free when they are ready, but these are clearly ducks meant to be kept. My boyfriend loves duck eggs so we thought we would keep them. I have read numerous forums and a bunch of threads on here, and now I'm even more confused on their run! I was just going to build it on the grass with buried hardware cloth to prevent predators, but now it seems many people are saying to use gravel? and drainage? I would really appreciate any tips you have for the coop and run in terms of size and what should be in the bottom! I would LOVE to see some example photos. We are trying to make it as low maintenance as possible as we both work full time. I'm pretty sure they will be fully feathered by the time the winter hits here in Maryland (this photo was them Oct 8th). Thank you!
