What would be the best material for a duck house? My ducks tend to be messy and sometimes get the straw in there house wet. I also needed to make a geese house for my three geese. I need to keep them separated any suggestions or pictures of a homemade house would be great.

I have XL dogloos for my geese. Large enough for 2 goose and the gander sits by the door guarding them. Found them for free to $10 each on CL. Mine only use their houses when they are laying or sitting.
I have seen some nice goose houses built out of straw bales. Stand them on their side so 2 high is almost 3'. Throw a piece of plywood on top for a roof and you're in business. Probably need around 20.

Is their water in the duck house?

Oooooohhh!!!! The duck house itself!

I like pine 1x8 tongue and groove because it tongues together its very strong and easy to work with and lasts when painted

the groves give it an old barn look

this is my small duck house
