Does anyone have advice on the requirements of a duck house? Size, building materials, style, features to make it easier to maintain? How did you build your duck house and what would you have done differently? My husband and I are designing our duck house and want to make it as efficient, effective, and attractive as possible. There are a million cute chicken coops out there and we would like something just as nice for our ducks. The ducks will be here in the middle of March, and will spend the first few weeks inside so we have some time to work on the design before we need to have it ready.
