    Ok, so today my oldest batch of chicks moved outside into their grow-up pen which is 30 sq ft. We put on a new coop that we found in the barn. They will stay here until new run & coop is finished. Then I will expand the baby pen to around 100 sq ft for a pair of ducks. I also included photos of Peter's domain! [​IMG]

    Here is the baby-now-future-duck pen and coop. This is the one I'm going to expand.

    I like your little henhouse with the lift-up door, do you know where I could find plans for something like that?

    Quote:The white one? I just threw it together! No plans, really. I literally took a bunch of wood and started piecing it together. "Oh, look this is about the same size as this, that can be the roof!"

    Quote:lol. We have too much room and it's becoming dangerous. We keep wanting more chickens and more chickens and now we have developed a thing for ducks. Eventually, i want me a goose!

    In the second picture, I see chicken wire tips poking out. I once lost a golden pheasant...she stabbed herself on something similar, and bleed to death.
