Duck coop ideas and temperament help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Im fairly new to taking care of and owning ducks, haven't done it in almost 5 years. 

 

I need help with Duck/Turkey coop ideas.

 

I will be getting a Midget White turkey, White Pekin, Cayuga, and some Runners. Can that combination of birds coexist peacefully or will i need to make separate coops for them? I would like to get all females if possible but would like one or two males. 

 

New to this site so please send some help!!!

HI!

I would keep them separate.  At least once I heard of ducks meeting an untimely end due to turkey aggression.

 

There's a turkey forum, so they can help with designing turkey housing.

 

Here, oh, mercy, there are so many cool setups!

 

But ducks like you are planning on do not roost, they will nest - if they do - on the floor.  Mine like corners, so I attach plywood perpendicular to the walls of the shelter and they seem to like that.

 

I would say search the archive for "duck shelter" and "Duck coop" and "duck house."  

 

Stoney's Guide to Raising Ducks has a nice, simple shelter design.
