Hey everybody, I am a first time flock owner and I have four ducklings that are 13 days old today Im working on finishing their coop outside and just wanted some advice. There are spaces about 1.5-2in in some parts of the roofing as you can see in the pics below, should I cover these with hardware cloth or some other material? I've read some horror stories about racoons etc. Also I am wondering what type of bedding I should use in the middle part of the coop. I was thinking about putting in some larger gravel but I don't know how the ducks will like that. I am going to try the deep litter method inside the enclosed part of the coop where the flock will be at night as I am trying to keep cleaning down as much as possible. I also am wondering what you all think about the pool? I have installed a valve in the bottom that Im going to attach a hose to that will gravity feed down to my raised beds. Should I build some type of platform around the pool or can I leave it as is? Thanks for any advice, photos are below.
