Crazy story but here's how it goes, I have been reading on this informative site for years, waiting for the day I too could keep my own chickens. It's taken awhile, a long while to get to that point, so in the meantime I also have gotten into reading here about ducks because the property I recently was able to buy also has a pond. n I learned that they, ducks and chickens 'could' be kept together in a coop but it was better for them to have separate arrangements as the chickens have a pecking order while the ducks tend to be a little more mellow, copacetic, that's of course unless a rooster and drake decide on a face off. I've looked truly at a gazillion great coops built by members here. Thanks for all the great pics, ideas, plans and your ingenuity. Much appreciated and inspiring! But the truth of the matter is that I am not much of a carpenter myself, and even a nesting box might prove a challenge for me, so I have even considered a Snap lock Coop, though even the larger looked a little small for my purposes and so Ihave prerused several craigslist cities looking for a good already built coop at least for a couple of years. A couple of days ago, I finally found one and only about a 1/2 hour drive away!!! All excited! Really excited! The ad said good for chickens or pheasants, and here is your first clue. It was a home built, well built 5' x 12' shed/coop with a human sized walk in door in the middle, windows to either side with wire cloth for predator proofing and for ventilation and best yet inside it was divided in to two sides with separate doors, each with it's own outdoor entrance door, so I am thinking perfect! I can keep 4-6 chickens on one side and 4-6 ducks on the other side. So I call the guy to make sure if it's still available and to get directions. Then I called him a second time because in one of the corners of the pics I could see the attached runs, and I forgot to ask whether these are included as well? He says sure, And you can even have my Pheasants if you want them too! So this is the start of my long story and why I am now on the Pheasant forum too! As if learning about keeping Chickens and Ducks for a first timer wasn't enough!!! How do I get myself into this stuff? :/ More to come about this story and hopefully some questions answered....please, please, please!
