I just love our nearly complete Muscovy House. We used all recycled materials (i.e. pallets, storm door etc.) or materials we had around the place already except for the hinges and latch for the pop door. We still want to put in 2 roosting shelves since there is limited floor space. We built for night time and broody use and don't expect to winter more than 5 Muscovies. We plan on free ranging our Muscovies but will put in a temp. net fence for a week or so until they get use to their new quarters and our soon to hatch ducklings are a bit bigger. Humble beginnings A work in progress And tah, dah ...... Almost finished. Just a little tweeking here and there. We will place some logs around for roosting outside. I replaced the screen in the storm door w/ 1/4 hardware cloth as well as in the back window. I have chicken wire stapled along the bottom edge to discourage the ducks fm nesting under the house & other critters fm hanging out under there. Our kitten had gotten used to running under the house while it was going up and ran into the wire three times yesterday wondering why she couldn't get under there. The lighting made it difficult to see. I will also put up a "Muscovy House" sign I am making. We hope to get the Scovies settled into their new quarters as soon as the ducklings are hatched out this coming weekend.
