I was at home depot yesterday and I scored an 8 by 10 shed for an awesome price so I am going to build that and a large fenced in area for my girls instead of the small tractor coop I have now. We have the gravel laid for the new shed foundation but won't get to building it until next weekend. I suspect it will take at least a week to build. It won't be beautiful like the coops on here but hopefully it will be safe and spaceous! We currently have one Hamburg hen and one Rhode Island Red hen living in a tractor coop. The indoor tractor space is 4 by 4 by 4 high with a perch raised up 2 feet and a lower perch 6 inches off the ground and a nesting box. The outdoor fenced area is 8 by 4 by 2 high. I wheel it to a fresh patch of grass daily, and could move it twice daily if it would help. A local lady is selling her male and female muskovy ducks and so I was thinking of adding them to my flock as I would love to have some baby ducklings! My only concern is that this lady would like me to pick up the ducks this week and I won't have the new coop built for at least 1-2 weeks. I only have the tractor coop to house them in until then. Does anyone have any thoughts on how it might go to have the 2 ducks added in with my Hamburg and Rhodie? I don't want them fighting and am worried it will be too close quarters.... If the consensus is I could give it a go I will try the hanging cd trick and placing a pop can in the coop for the hens to keep them distracted from picking on the ducks. If the consensus is not to risk it I will just wait and find other birds to add to the flock once the new coop is built...any thoughts would be appreciated.
