    I am looking for plans to build a duck house. I have an idea of what i want to build, but would like other ideas. How big do their nesting boxes have to be?
    Thanks, Lee

    Well, they say they should be about 12 to 18 inches square, well bedded with straw or something. However,I have found that ducks drop eggs where they feel like it, mostly in a corner of the duck yard or under a tarp.
