I am not to sure what to build for nesting boxes for my call ducks. What do you use and do you have a picture of it?

Ducks do not necessarily need nest boxes- I give mine straw bedding and they create their own nests - its very cool to watch! smile

When I worked at a city farm I had to make some nest boxes - we used a small, but long rabbit hutch, took out the inner divider, then put in new dividers to create 3 nest boxes in the hutch and it worked like a treat!

My muscovies just use the existing shaving in their house to make nests, but sometimes they will slip into the chicken coop and lay an egg in the chicken nest box.
