We are getting our first two tomorrow, and we are getting another three in May. The two coming tomorrow are sisters that are eight months old. They are Buff/Orp. The three arriving in May are Cayuga ladies. We weren't expecting to get ducks so soon so our duck area we were designing isn't finished. Therefore, we set up a temporary area for them. Along one side of our house is a roofed area with poured concrete and dog kennels (chain link.) Our dogs are inside dogs so there aren't any in it. I used the middle kennel and lined the base with 10" tall pieces of 1" thick cabinet-grade wood (freebie wood from my work that we were tossing,) then put hardware cloth three feet up from the base of the kennel as well as created a frame/hardware cloth "cover" to put in front of the door for predator protection. The top, although there is a roof above, is also covered with a tarp to help thwart any predators. We put some straw and hay down as bedding, have two "houses" for them, and there is a drinking water area as well as a bathing area. When they're not in their kennel/cage set-up, they (when we're home and outside) can be let out into the aisle (blocked with 5' no climb fencing) and walked to a 60 ft by 60 ft free-range area with 5' no climb fencing as well as another pool Hope they like their new/temporary digs! They are "city ducks" whose neighbors complained about their quacking so they will be living as Queens on our farm in the country. I will definitely post photos tomorrow!
