I have a Little Tykes playhouse, I'm looking on craigslist every day looking for a large wire dog kennel. I live in North-East Ohio and the winters are very cold with snow and the summers are hot and humid. Where I would be putting the kennel it would be standing alone at the back of my yard (No fence, approx. 1 acre) so I would cover the back and top with tarp to protect from rain and the sun. there is a lot of trees but occasionally when it rains it gets muddy back there. I do have a very large dog so I'm not very worried about predators. I will predator proof the run and playhouse. My questions is, would my situation be better for ducks or for chickens? If I get ducks it would be Pekin ducks, if I get chickens it would be Silky Bantams. thanks so much!
