As the ducks refuse to stay in it(however I did find the spot they were managing to escape through and repaired it, so I could force them)...and I spent all this time making it cute, I was sick of it not being used. I also felt sorry for the chickens as they don't get much free range time in the yard because they have to be baby sat. So, today the 3 girls are spending the day in the duck pen. They have grass to harass, dirt to scratch, a wading pool to get in(I emptied all but a couple inches of water), a dog/duck house to hide in, shade all through the day...and a few flies hanging around. They seemed happy when I left them. Of course now that the chickens are in their pen, the ducks are a little put out and proceeded to yell at me for a very long time while stomping their little feet stnding next to the pen.
