Glad you think so! I've been sketching and scribbling out and sketching again until I settled on that arrangement. I really like it overall, just seeing if it seems like a good plan for a duck coop!
I'd read where a lot of people have said their ducks like sleeping outside more than inside. I wonder if it's instinct? I'm a bit paranoid about making sure every single bird is where they belong (yes, I count all 42 chickens before I lock the coop up every night... ) so I'll probably be carrying ducks in to bed every night.
I'd also heard that ducks don't tend to use nests even if provided. I'm going to go ahead and provide it for them, but I'm not going to be totally shocked if they don't use it. Thanks for your thoughts!
Oh, love this! I've seen those pipe feeders around a lot lately. I do wonder if they would discourage sparrows! I'm not sure how well they would work with my big flock, unless I did something like below. My girls get pretty mean at the feed dish.
Thanks for the ideas! Great post!
I was thinking the same thing but I worry about attracting unwanted pests. Since I switched feed there is a lot on the ground. My flock has grown or should I say growing up and I need more feeders this would be nice for less waste and a bird deterrent. There would need to be several or a trough area? Plus in the winter that tote would really take up space in the coop.
