So... I asked in the chicken section and kinda asked here as well... and I'm kinda really confused. My idea for a chicken/duck enclosure is to make it 8'x24' with a chicken coop and duck houses at one end (farthest from the garden) and a shallow (1-2') long stock tank with a "deck" on the other end (closest to the garden). Now here's where I'm getting confused Most of y'all are telling me that it sounds like a fantastic idea, and some of you have even done something similar. (which I like to hear btw... ) and in the chicken section, I hearing basically it's a horrible idea, and that I should even consider putting wooden lattice in a kiddie pool to keep chickens from drowning. So... which advice do I follow?? I don't want to step on anyones toes, I just want my chickens and ducks to peacefully co-exist without me being a nervous wreck about the chickens drowning. I made a sketch of what it would possibly look like. Nothing is to scale, it's just a paint sketch. (I didn't say it was a very GOOD sketch... haha) The pink is where the chicken coop would be, the green would be the duck houses (which are converted dog houses), the blue the stock tank and the grey would be like the deck. I would also provide feeders and more waterers as well. I'm hoping that 8x24 will provide them with at least SOME grass.
