Is it OK to have your live ducks close by your kennels. I'm thinking of moving my pen up on the concrete slab that my kennels are on. the slab has a drain in it and if I put the pen near or over the drain ,it would be about 8 or 10 feet from the fronts of my runs. Are there potential health problems from keeping the ducks this close? The wash down from the kennels would come towards the ducks but the duck stuff would not wash towards the dogs. Also would the scent and sound from the ducks cause any problems ? I saw a really neat duck pen today with the ducks up off the ground on a wooden platform, was thinking this would work better than the way I have it now which is on pavers and just washes out into the yard. The pen is currently about 40-50 feet from the closest kennel.
