    Hey everyone, so I finished the new duck pen where they will be spending the nights. It currently only has on dog house but I plan on getting at least one more. They are all 5 weeks today and getting HUGE!!! (I know I say that every time)...... Anyways hope you like the new setup!

    Here is the front view of the pen

    Here is it attached to the chicken coop, the pen ends where the white wall ends

    BTW, Everything is made from recycled materials except for the chicken wire which was left over from the chickens coop.

    thats pretty neat! good job. I was thinking about using the trellis like that to make my next tractor out of...I have 2 good sized pieces of it and was wondering about doing the sides of a tractor with it. I only worry with wood, i'd have to paint both sides or seal it so it won't rot from water and poo.

    how is it holding up?

    Well I only built the pen today. There is also chicken wire backing it the trellis, otherwise i'm not sure it would be strong enough. This just gives the 2 flocks a bit of privacy.
