    A man is giving me 21 Khaki Campbell ducks, and I need to know what the size of the pen needs to be. I know there is going to be a 10x12 pond. But that's about all.Thanks.

    Depends on if they are going to be in the pen 24/7 or just at night... Just at night, 3-4sq feet per duck, could probably get away with less if you commit to cleaning out more often. If they are always going to be in there... well, bigger. I have 1400 sq feet of pen for 40 ducks, but they go out to free range in the yard at least 5 days a week.
