    I made this Duck house last weekend. The crate was about to be thrown out at the place my sister works. She thought of me and asked them to save it. I picked it up, thought about it for a while and decided it would make a great house for my two Pekings. Need to paint it and it will be complete.

    Heres the view of the ducks enjoying their small pond. I dug the pond last summer with a backhoe.
