    Up cycled dog kennel to duck house

    Here are a few pictures showing how I turned an old dog kennel I payed £20 for 8 years ago and gave it a new life. The wood used was 2”x2” and some ply wood for the roof. The reason I decided to lift it was so it created a space underneath and I personally don’t like anything on the ground as it...

    Home of the Ducks

    We decided to get ducks this year. Really, I decided and DW went along with it somewhat unwillingly at first. I have been interested in ducks since we got chickens last Spring. We now have 8 chickens, 4 turkeys, 5 ducks, and a whole covey of quail (15 adults, 26 chicks and 40 eggs in the...

    A vacation home for the Duckies

    When starting to raise ducks last year we were so inexperienced with everything, that the people at the local farm-store convinced us to spend a fortune for a prefabricated chicken-cube: After our ducks outgrew that little house and i built a large home for them on the duck-platform the house...

    Show me your duck house

    We have 3 ducks and we'r are currently housing them in our shed coop in their own section. Its not very large, just 4'x4'. They have access to a large run and pond if their own (except a few fish in the pond) all day though. I am sure our setup could be improved, but I don't have much of a...

    Can ducks live with chickens?

    Hello all, I am new to keeping chickens and I'm loving it. Thanks in advance for the help and my apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong section. I recently bought 10 beautiful black Australorps, about 1 year old. They have been laying about 8 eggs a day for the past couple weeks and seem...

    Premade Duck House?

    **This is planning for the future for 3 medium sized adult ducks** Are there any durable, well ventilated duck houses available on the market? While I wait for my ducklings to arrive, I keep looking into it and there seems to be a lot of complaints about most of them. They already have a...

    Your duck pen....

    I left the ducks out for the first time last night even though the pen isn’t quite finished. The wire is all up and the house is put together. I have locks on the gate but we plan to add a pitched tarp (just temporary plastic cover right now) to the house side, I have a bigger pool, and I’m...

    Muscovy housing?!?

    We have 3 Muscovy (1 drake and 2 ducks) we just acquired last weekend. They are about 5 months old. We built a hoop coop for them and live in Florida. Should we just build a roost or should I build a house for them as well? The hoop coop has a wire floor to keep predators out as we have coyote...

    Taming my new ducks and building them a lovely new home

    Hello everyone! I'm a first time duck mama, I just took home my two Shetland Duck girls. The guy I got them from was re homing them as they didn't get on with the rest of his ducks and they would not let them get any food. They are not in the best condition and one of them is particularly...

    Automatic Duck House Door

    I have backyard ducks and sometimes it’s difficult to make it home in time to shut the ducks into their house safely for the night or be able to sleep in. Ducks NEED routine! So I created this automatic duck house door to help regulate their schedule. Thanks to Wick at NetScraps and other...

    A-Frame Duck House + Day Shelter

    House Dimensions: 4'x6' Elevated 6" off ground Floor Space: 24 sq. ft. Door size: 12"x12" This house comfortably fits 6 ducks (4 sq. ft. of floor space per duck), but could easily fit 10-12 ducks as mine only utilize the back half (12 sq. ft.). I attached 1 out of 4 side panels of the a-frame...

    Do I have to use a wood floor for my duck house?

    My ducklings are 6-1/2 weeks old, feathered quite nicely and we're all ready for them to make their move to the big house. Most of the duck houses I've seen have been elevated and with wooden floors. I was hoping to use the deep litter method and wanted to avoid elevating the house. My plan...

    Duck house floor

    i am converting an awesome plastic "step 2" playhouse that is 5' x 5' for my 2 peking ducks for a nightime coop. Would a layer of straw over 6" of sand on a earth floor be ok? I live in the rainy part of oregon. Never had ducks before so not sure of the best way to floor a duck house. Your...

    Building a multi-use and simple Chicken Duck Enclosure

    This spring we built a chicken duck enclosure. After much planning, reviewing and more planning, we finally threw all the ideas away and went for simple and inexpensive and the least amount of disruption to our feathered flock as possible. Creatures of Habit Chickens, and particularly ducks...
