    A 16x16 Coop.Made with ruff cut lumber and a tin roof.9 4x4x8 post and 54 2x4x8's.My DH tared the tin roof to help keep
    it from rusting.The left side is completely open,right side is completely closed.The back has a small window so plenty of air
    can circulate.The windows are covered in dog wire,the left side is covered with dog wire and chicken wire on top.Has a front
    and back door.There is a 8x8 area closed in with dog wire for the ducks inside the coop.The ducks have a 1089 ft run they are
    let out into every morning.Dusty dark they return to there coop for the night.They have a kiddy pool to splash and play in that
    gets changed daily.Will be getting more kiddy pools plus a old jucuzzi.I have 11 ducks and 20 chicks sharing the coop.
    I will be adding electricity to it before winter.Also have a electric fence to put up.Have aluminum panels to go over the windows
    and left side in winter time.

    Thank you all.I know its not the most elaborate but i love it!!!!! To me it couldnt have turned out better.As soon as we can we are going to stain it a natural wood color.

    really nice, we need to make a permanent duck house, right now tarps are covering them at night and providing some shade during daytime depending how we position them.
