Do ducks roost? In planning the way I would like to make the duck house I wondered if I need to build it tall enough for them to get on a roosting platform or a flat turned 2x4. If all they need is a hay or shavings filled house then I can make it only 4' high and be able to hinge the roof to open. If they want to roost I will make it 6' tall and put in a roost of some sort, with a door on a side wall. Maybe it depends on breed? Yes, I still need to go buy a book but you guys have way more experience and books can be only very general. I will buy the "Stories" book because I like their chicken books so well and refer to them often.
