I was looking at building a duckhouse, but I will be getting 7 cayugas, 3 golden hybrid layers, and 2 buff geese. Rather than spending up to $1,000 on a barn, I was wondering if a Garage-in-a-box would be suitable. The dimensions are 10ft*15ft (height is 8 ft).
They will only be in there at night by and will be free to roam about the yard or the duck house during the day as they please.
The house will be in the no-go zone, inside of 4 foot fence with poultry wire dug two feet into the ground (pre-existing). The osutside if the fence runs live electrical wire.
From what i have read, 150 square feet is well above the minimum, but I'd like a second opinion.
