I spontaneously got some giant white pekin ducks from TSC. I've been thinking about what kind of predator proof shelter I could provide them once they're out of the brooder. I'm hoping to keep two of the six duckies I have... Does their coop have to be draft free, or will they be alright in open air? (I live in KY, it gets cold in the winter but very rarely goes below 0.) I'm thinking of using this chicken tractor I have: For the flooring, I was thinking of putting hardwire cloth with one or two small boards for extra support across it, then setting the entire tractor up on bricks, two or three bricks high. What do you think? Is wire flooring ok for ducks, or will it hurt their feet? Do they need shavings to lay in? Do they need nest boxes? During the day they will be in a pen with my chickens. The area is roughly 40x50, with grass and bushes and trees. I'm not sure I can do a baby pool as a constant fixture in the pen, but I will definitely provide something for them to plunge their heads in. I tried searching the site and also googling, and I didn't really find any great info about backyard ducks.
