How can I build a good coop that protects the ducks from predators?

post #3 of 17652

Try looking at the stickies at the top of the forum. There are some great ideas. Locking them in at night, electric fencing are good starts.

Great Idea with this thread! We raise Ancona ducks, Indian Runner ducks and Silkie ducks. This year a family of bobcats tore into the silkie duck pen and took all 3 of our drakes and 3 hens leaving us with no drakes so we won't have silkies available this year, however we are getting ducklings from Holderread to replace our lost silkies so either the Fall or next year on them.
