Just took the chain saw and cut a hole in the side of the chicken/duck house so the chickens can go outside and the call ducks can go inside. Tried to chase the chickens outside but it was impossible, they were to scared, but a few hours later they are sitting at the doorway thinking about it. 26 chickens in the house! They will be very happy when they find out how much fun they will have in the outside run with the ducks. I'm only going to keep 5 or 6 laying hens and a rooster, and have people waiting for hens when they are sexed 100%. Going to be crowded for awhile with 26 chickens and 18 call ducks until the extras get sold.
Lost 1 of my call drakes to an owl a few nights ago so will be locking everybody chickens and ducks alike inside the house at night.
Nice coop! The chickens will love the out-doors once they learn how much fun it is.
I'm sorry about the duck you lost. I hope the others remain safe and happy.
