Hello all, just joined! Love the advice and community here.
I have been researching like crazy in prep for my four Cayuga ducklings which should be arriving next Tuesday. I have their brooder all ready and rearing to go. Duckling prep, check! Duck prep? Ehhhh..
Now I'm planning for their future outdoor housing. For their shelter/nesting/weather needs I'm debating between building something from scratch or simply buying a small shed that's large enough to walk in and rake up and clean.
The shed I was debating on is a 8x6x6 steel shed that I can modify to have more ventilation
I live in Northern California. Summer highest highs can be 100-110, Winter can see dips as low as 30 with an average of 45 at night.
Would metal be frowned upon? I usually see wooden/plastic type outdoor housing. I don't want them to be too cold or too hot.
Just looking to tick these things off my list to narrow down the "right" option :)
Thanks so much
