    most important thing about making your own duck pen is not keeping your ducks IN.
    but keeping the things that will kill your ducks OUT. keep that in mind.
    and if the wind blows the same way at your place most of the time,
    keep that in mind as well. duck pens smell fowl.

    I believe there may be bear in the Stowe area so the chain link is pretty stout.
    Not a lot of money to build really.
    ~10x20 concrete pad with depression for swimming pool and chainlink, people gate & duck catcher gate to catch a few in dry end. water source and placed where runoff isn't a problem.

    Mine is upwind and it smells bad in the middle of the summer. It is 8x8 A-frame with a raised floor so it is easily moved, similar to a chicken tractor. The floor is covered with plastic lattice so the ducks are not walking on wire. I have had one break in. No ducks were missing but the duck food was. I suspect a bear.
