The duck coop is almost done!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Converted the existing gazebo area in to a duck run/coop! they can't be free range because my dog would kill them :( 

 

Going to sink the kiddy pool as soon as the pond pump has arrived.

I may also need to build a new gate.. PVC one is already bending :O

 

Anything I need to change/add?

Is there a ramp?  Are they using it?  I have read the slope needs to be less than 30 percent....lots of nice features, there :)

Muscovy ducks like to perch and be up high unlike other ducks :) Wild muscovies roost in trees. They navigate the ramp easily  but i will keep an eye on them

Great looking Scovies and nice Scovy pad!!!  I like the water and feed hangers!!!  That's a terrific idea.  Lots of straw on the paving stones like you've got.  Other than that, great set up!!

I'm thinking about putting garden edging around the paving and adding 2-3 inches of pine shavings or sand over the top of them... the garden hedging to keep it all in one place. 

I already have a roll of plastic edging in the shed so it would be easily doable :woot
