    How does a duck coop differ from chicken coop? For example the location and size of nest boxes? Coop size for 8-12 ducks?

    Thanks,

    Pretty much the same, except they don't roost and will not use elevated nest boxes. They sleep and lay eggs on the floor.

    Larger breeds of duck such as muscovies and aylesburies will perch on medium sized perches, but as the above post said, all activity is on the floor. In my opinion, ducks need more space, although it does depend on the breed!
