Here is an image of our new Duck Coop. We decided to build it on stilts so that there would be a shaded area for the ducks. 80% of the materials are used. The siding was made from repurposed window covers for storms.
Inside the home, there is a ramp for the ducks to enter the bedding area. I'm sure they will wander out all over the house but this is the area we hope they will use as their bed.
Here is a bedding shot before the hay was inserted. The rust paint is a water proof sealant for decking.
The coop has an attached outdoor pen that is fully enclosed. Small door on the end enables entry. It is roughly 6 feet tall.
All in all, I think we spent around $300 for the house and pen. We plan on letting the ducks free range when we are home from work but this enclosed home will keep them out of trouble (and safe) when we are at work.
I really like your duck house and the safe run, how are they doing getting up the steps? and
