    Are you looking to figure out the overnight sleeping quarters - or all day everyday kinda run and sleeping quarters?

    Mine cuddle up at night - a couple get into the nest boxes :mad: If you just need them closed up over night - gosh a dog kennel/house would work fine.

    For an all dayevery day run etc.(no free-ranging) you'd need a lot more room. For chickens the suggestion is 10sf each - I would imagine the ducks would need double that each to stay happy!
