In the Brooder
- Mar 22, 2015
Hey BYC! I have recently gotten 4 khaki cambell ducks to go along with 6 Cornish rocks. My Coop is probably bigger than the image says, around 5 x 7 actually but you get the picture. My nesting boxes are these.
they whole unit is about 2.5 feet tall and the bottom railing is about at knee level. I am wondering where the ducks will lay their eggs, and if there is a way to put a little ramp up from the right side in front of the roost so the ducks can lay in the bottom boxes. I am also looking where the ducks will sleep at night, as they can't get onto the roost. I have thought that maybe they could sleep under the nesting boxes but then figured that they may as well lay eggs down there if I put little raised edges to contain some straw/shavings. Ideas on what I can do to give the new duckies a place to lay eggs as well as sleep? thank you!
