Igloos for ducks - Page 2

post #11 of 19

I must smile :). . . without photo's I can only guess.  But that photo looks like a KC duckling.

 

Ducklings with light patches on the front often turn out to be Swedish, like I wrote before.

 

Runner babies have a look to them, too, they can stand quite upright when on alert, and after a week or two, their bills start to look a certain way.  I cannot describe it, but I often recognize them.

Please PM me, or use @Amiga in the message if you would like to hear from me soon.

I comfortably fit 4 adult cayuga hens in a the 90 lb dogloo.  It's their favorite place to lay and their favorite house when its cooooold out.   I also have a wooden  dog house  in their pen for them. But i wish i'd gotten 2  dogloos instead.

 

My girls are either all 4 together in the same house  or they're paired off in twos with each pair in a different house.

 

Everyone lays in the house that my first layer  lays in. She almost always chooses the dogloo.

 

With 6 I'm not sure if they'll make 2 trios or 3 pairs.

I think one medium dogloo isn't big enough for 6 ducks.

The 90 lb dog dogloo fits 4 with just enough room for them not to be right on top of each other.

I think you'll need 2 dogloos for 6.
