Building my own chicken coop!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I don't like how my coop is set up. My duck needs to be in a more protected house! Can you guys please comment some pictures of fairly easy chicken coop (that I can build) that would protect my duck from predators! ūüėä It would be greatly appreciated!

Easy: Just replace the chicken wire here with hard wire and go a foot into the ground with it. :)

That looks like a great design...not only for ducks, but I'm thinking it would be great for turkeys as well. Few changes in dimensions and Yeah...great looking design.

Yeah I snagged it from google when I was looking for brooding coop ideas. This could easily be a 5'5'5' cube and there'd be plenty of shade.

Growing up, we dealt with coyotes and the occasional fox or raccoon. We had a simple run made of 5 ft tall posts with 2x4 welded wire. Inside the run was a wooden box that was 3 ft X 4 ft, and what 3 ft high. Simple hinged door and it kept both our ducks, Henry and Maxine, safe for many years. The ducks ranged all over the property during the day, while being safe, comfy and cozy at night. It wasn't pretty, but it worked.
