    Would a small chicken coop (from orschlen) be suitable for ducks? Can or will they negotiate ramp?

    It depends on how steep the ramp is- some ducks will learn to use a ramp but most don't like it. I have converted a small chicken coop by removing the perches and legs for my WHs and it works well.

    Put the coop on or 2 or 3" above ground. Use a wide ramp with non-slip coating.
