Small, Budget-Friendly Coop/Duck House?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Ok, so I'm looking for a house for ducks. lol. For the daytime a chicken wire fence is ok in our yard, but I've just lost two of my beloved babies and am left with one injured duck. The last of the three ducks that I hatched. sad Her and my ducklings that will be hatching at the end of the month need a safer place to sleep at night. So I'm looking to buy a nice duck house or chicken coop that ducks will fit in, for 4 or 5 ducks. Something that can be moved every week or so would be awesome.I have considered making a house, but I just don't have the time right now and would like to get something very soon. I'd love if anybody has some good coops/dck houses/websites to share with me! Thanks. smile

Look through all the coop designs on BYC.  I am looking for a small duck coop and that's where I am going to look.  Good luck!

http://stores.ebay.com/PD-Plans-Design?_trksid=p4340.l2563 several of those smaller coop plans or even the dog houses would make great duck houses. Back when i had ducks , my momma muscovy kicked a dog out of the dog house and the other momma duck made a nest und the back door steps.
