So what I've done here in my entire coupe I have of course the 12 lbs feeder then I have a little bucket for water as the ducks like mixing the food with the water it makes it easier to clean out on a daily basis I also have next to the feeder two hooks one hook I usually put bananas cucumbers corn anything like that the other hook has the chicken wire basket that I put in the heads of lettuce cabbage that way they have to work to get that food out I don't know if you can see but on the outset of the table there's also a small bucket attached to the outside of the leg it's a wire frame bucket with wire mesh surrounding it and then almost open bottom and I usually put apples and pears in there so they have to work to get the fruit I've got the dust bath box for the chickens the pond for the ducks I also keep the Haybale for them to find the wheat heads give them something to scratch and they also play chicken of the hill with it the structure holding all the food is actually A triple purpose structure it has rungs for them to jump around on and get to higher locations and play king of the hill like chickens like to do, it's a feeding station and it has a laminate table on top so that I can prepare treats for them or a work station to do more work to the run. Once a week I'll put a salmon out for them to all eat I also throw minnows and goldfish into the pond for the ducks to hunt, the coop is my shed that I converted half of it into a coop built ledges and converted milk crates into nesting boxes as well as installed roosting bars etc. adjacent to their run is a grazing area for them that they're allowed out under supervision that is always kept lush and green for them as of right now I am working on getting them a mirror as hens enjoyed looking at themselves and preening and as I don't have a rooster yet gives them something else to do the entire idea of my run was to keep them entertained as much as possible so i'm constantly changing and adding to it taking things out putting new things in that way they never get bored
Haha I never thought of a mirror!
I like the wire buckets for contained treats, thanks for the idea. I try to avoid mixing food with the ground/runs/chicken droppings.
btw - roosters should be easy to come by if you see one in your future ;)
