    Hey peepers! I'm new here and mom to a 3 week old fawn runner and pekin, gender still unknown. Does anyone know of a duck pen manufacturer in Southern California? I don't have the skills, tools and know-how to build a good pen myself. :p Would love to find someone who would come build one on my property if I pay for materials and pay them for their time. Any leads?

    Shall I make it a bit easier for you.
    Go and buy a dog kennel and go and buy a dog pen. There all sorted. No sawing, nailing, hammering and sweating. [​IMG]

    gofasterstripe has the perfect solution. Dog pens are perfect for ducks. Just remember to put hardware cloth around the bottom of the panels, so at least 2 feet from the ground up is further protected against predators. Raccoons can reach a foot into a pen through regular chain link openings, and pull a duck's head (or a chicken's) out to kill it. If possible, buy the 36 inch wide hardware cloth and make an apron on the ground of one foot, putting the other 2 feet up the fence panels. Stake the apron or put bricks or rocks on it to keep predators from digging under the fence.
