    ..its 6 foot by 4 foot not including the nesting boxes which are about one and a half feet wide and about 2 feet long...originally I made this only for my four ducks but I was given some eggs that were already half incubated so I felt obligated to finish them so they wouldn't die and now I have 5 baby Muscovy ducklings and nowhere to put them unless this is ok enough to put them in there or how many can fit in there????... I'll get rid of some males if I have to but what do I do

    I'd post this in the waterfowl section.

    I have ducks, both mallards and pekins. 4x6 is good for your 4 ducks, but is going to be too small for 5 more. The babies can go into a brooder for a while, to keep them warm etc,but after a few weeks, they are going to need more space. Any chance of getting them their own coop?
