    Today I built a really small coop for my newly laying female rouen, and im going out tommarow to build another one. Its really small and can only fit three ducks so I will need 4 coops for my 11 ducks. Does anyone know if a duck will brood her own eggs infront of other ducks? Thanks!

    Most of the materials were free but the sideing is what costed the most. We only got it so it would match the other coop.

    Yeah, I was just trying to make a quick coop for my rouen hen. So for recycleing I think its pretty good.
