    Can I use a raised chicken coop with attached run for ducks? Obviously they'll be hatched and brooded indoors (laundry room) but my bff found a free chicken coop online that looks like a GREAT deal. I plan to free range but love the idea of the attached run so they can be "out" when I'm at church etc.

    It is possible but you may have to change the ramp. Ducks need less of an incline and wider so they don't fall off and even then they may not take to it. However if it's free I would find a way to make it work! It isn't too hard to add a different ramp or possible shorten up the legs so the coop isn't so high off the ground.

    Thanks for the heads up. If we pick it up I will post some pics and get some input for modification.
