    We just got finished building another coop/brooder for 16 ducks(they are day olds now). It's dimensions are 16' long x 3' high x 4' wide, there is also a 4'x4' house for them on it, so their run is 12 ft. long. It took about 3 or 4 days to complete, it's new residents were brought in it tonight, and they love it. It's a little big for them but I think they'll grow into it. Here are some pictures...

    Thanks for the pictures - that's just what I needed to see. Someone on this forum (I'll name no names [​IMG]) is trying to convince me I need ducks. (It wasn't too hard since I've already decided I'd like ducks someday.) You're pen would be so easy to make .... darn, now I may have to get ducks!

    They are soo cute in that picture - it won't be too long before they do grow into it.
