    I am trying to search for pens others have made for small ducks or aviary type for small ducks. Anyone know what links or photos I can find or plans? We could probably figure it out from photos,seems not to be very many.
    I am going to get some duck books , only have geese ones. Will ducks use a ramp into a nightbox or pen from a aviary yard? Or does it need to be on the ground level?
    I have 3 mini silver appleyards and 2 silky ducks from Holderreads coming .....

    We have 5 ducks in a coop that resembles a large dog house. It's only about 4 feet tall. Any coop you build for them should be on the ground or close to it.

    When we first built our duck coop we had it up off the ground on stilts, and we had a ramp going from the coop to the ground. The ducks never did use the ramp, we finally had to cut the stilts off the coop and lower it to the ground.
