Ducks and duck house

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

Here's a few pictures I thought someone may enjoy.  Yes, it is a bit much for 2 ducks, but I was looking into the future.  I may just get another "whim," as my husband calls it.  Who knows, I may have a bunch of runners living in there someday.  I'm still working on a permanent place for a small pool of some sort.  They will be free ranging most of the time but when I'm away from home, this is their home.  It's a 12' x 12'.  We think it's boogy man proof, but we'll see.  We did go ahead with the Trex on the floor.  We left, I believe 3/8" between boards so I could just wash it out.  That's how us lazy folks like to do things :)  Oh and I did put a nice doggy house with straw in there so they could escape the wind and such.  Not sure if they will go in or not.  These two are a little over 3 weeks old, but my dear man told me I HAD TO GET THEM OUT OF THE TUB.  Imagine that.
