Do I have enough room in my coop for ducks?

    I got a coop for my ducks that has about 6 1/2 square feet, not including the run. I'm wondering if this is enough room for my ducks, because I don't think I can afford another coop.

    It depends on how many ducks you have. If you're only keeping two in there, and they're only in there while sleeping, you could probably get away with it, just make sure they have a nice roomy run. If more than two or if they will have to spend a lot of their time in there, no, that's not big enough.

    Also depends on the size of the ducks.
    My first coop was about that size and it was fine for 3 runner ducks, but they were only locked in at night and were out and about during the day.
