    not a coop but this works for us - 1 pekin, 1 runner, 2 muskovy, & 4 mallards. Hopefully you will get a lot of replies! There are some BYC members with some really awsome duck housing!!

    Mine is a plastic doghouse inside of my chainlink chicken pen. Ducks can't get into the chicken house (entry is too high) so they can't mess up the water in there.
    A friend of mine houses hers in a similar set-up, but uses Dogloos with doors for extremely cold weather.

    We live in a climate with cold winters. We did build an insulated duck house with large windows for light. Inside it has concrete pavers, because our inground spinkler pipes and valves are below it. I did put rubber runner mats ($12 each) from Home Depot down for easy clean up and to protect the ducks feet since concrete is not to good for them. Plus the pavers do have sharp edges. We will put a stall mat down this fall, since it insulates the floor. Here are some pictures of outside, inside, how we setup up water and food inside, and their beds.

    Their house is cedar, with a cedar, pull-out floor that we cover with several inches of hay. I clean out the hay as needed. The roof is on hinges, and the side is a door to collect eggs. My hubby built it.

    The pond has a drain on the side near the chain link fence. It drains into the grass, and then refills automatically. That was a good investment - I'm sure it's paid for itself in the water it has saved us. I tend to get distracted and leave the hose running... oops.

    P.S.kylee2katie - I think I'm going to steal your idea and put a post up in the middle to hold up the wire across the top. Good call there!
