    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.

    Here is the inside of the baby-now-future-duck coop.

    Here is Peter's palace with is four (soon to be 6) girls

    Here is the location of the future laying hen pen and coop. The coop will go in the corner. The RUN will be 1600 sq ft!

    What do you all think?

    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.
