Hi all - I'm getting just 2 runners in April and am trying to plan for proper housing .. I have a large yard that is unfenced and opens to woods .. all the predators are around fox, raccoon ,coyote possum etc . I'm also on a tight budget , and not much of a carpenter type. my thought is to use existing wire fencing to make a fairly large pen , height about 5' , use chicken wire to skirt the perimeter , and secure it so digging under cant happen easily/quickly .. basically it would be secure enough for daylight hours .. at dusk I would like to move them into the garage , which is totally secure ... I would have a decent sized corner area made up with hay bale walls and a dog house for warmth and sleeping in . Is that a crazy idea ? I can spot clean poop daily , and tend to them often. I've heard so much about the volume and smell and mess of their crapping , that I wonder if I am mistaken ?? it is only 2 ducks , who will be outside foraging and pooping for almost all daylight hours. will it really be that bad to do this ?? any advice is greatly appreciated! thanks.
