We're planning on getting some more ducks this spring ( currently have 4 - One KC Drake, 1 Fawn and white runner, 1 swedish , and one pekin hen) all are hatchery stock. we're planning on getting the new ducks to be breeding stock but penning them together for now. The 'old' ducks are free range and will always be. they go into a duck house at night. We've got a 25 x 25 run that we were going to use- the footing will be 1/2 pea gravel 1/2 dirt . The area with the dirt will be the duck coop area, just three sides and a screen roof over 1/2 and a regular wood roof over the other 1/2. the coop is about 8x8 ( so the whole footage of the pen/run will be 33x33). I'm going to put a trough with a drain on a platform sortof like a duck patio so that they can swim and sun and then waddle down and sit below the pool or on the gravel . I'm going to TRY to grow grass in there for them. the other option is to raise them on the concrete car port with a run extending onto part of the lawn. not sure whats better yet. I'm wanting some Snowy Calls, Mini Silver Appleyards and Manderins . How many can I get... comfortably? Will bantam drakes fight in that small of a space if i get two of them?
