    Hi everyone.

    This is a great place for information. Lots of great stuff and very friendly people.

    I'll try to be a good contributor here.

    My 4 year old daughter's favorite thing in the world is visiting her cousins in the country and gathering eggs. She loves to hold the chickens and ducks and move them around.

    I'm like any dad and want to do whatever I can to help her have a happy and healthy life. I think this is one of the ways I can do that.

    I started building a coop for 4 ducks before I realized I don't know very much about this which brought me to here.

    I have built a 8' long, A-frame and I'm still mulling over the housing and feeding design elements of this.

    I have a superstar niece in a town outside Sterling who is helping me with advise.

    [​IMG] the Learning Center is a great place to start. The various forums will help you out also, coops, feeding, predator proofing etc. For more info on ducks go to the "Other backyard poultry " forum above - it included ducks, geese, quail, guineas, etc. etc. Duck needs are slightly different than chickens- they are a lot messier with water & poo.
