    i just got this for $1 at a garage sale today! it was lined with a blanket and had a really nice sleeping bag. they used it for their cat. no smell, very clean.

    measurements are 24" x 24" and 27" high at center.

    Very cool! Way worth a dollar.

    What kind of ducks are you gonna use it for?

    Rouen's are big too.

    It was totally worth a dollar. I need to make something like it on a larger scale for the ducks we'll be getting. LOL

    Quote:definately, to match my coop, and probably do something more durable to the roof..hubby has some shingles he will tack on.

    any suggestions on smaller ducks, anyone?

    [​IMG] Well done! They say (money experts) the best way to keep money in America is to yardsale, fleamarkets, & resale shops!
    Way to go! I dearly love to yardsale....went while on vacation...came home with buckoo's of stuff!

    Ms. Ozark Hen likes the ducks that they call (nicknamed groucho marx), sorry I can't think of the name of them.
    She would have good input on the recycle part too.

    Awesome. I've been looking on Craigslist for something similar for the ducks i'll be getting in a month or so.
