    This is my duck house that my dad and I made
    The front (I put ply wood up over the wire walls when its winter to keep snow out)
    [​IMG]
    The side, you can see the lil door that opens up to the nesting area so I can clean it
    [​IMG]
    Right inside the door, see the divider between my walk way and where the ducks live
    [​IMG]
    other pic of the divider and the ducks area
    [​IMG]
    The nesting area with wood floor and straw bedding (they are not laying right now so I have no nest boxes in there)
    [​IMG]
    The feed and water area with wire floor and my white call ducks
    [​IMG]
    You can see the walkway the ducks use to go around the divider I put up (so I can pen them seperate if I need to)
    [​IMG]
    Another pic you can see both parts of the pen and my call ducks

    Nice work. It's roomy and practical. I like the use of old lumber. You can later even a corrugated plastic panels to allow light in and to keep the weather out. I also like your smart thinking about keeping the food and water mess down. Well planned and nicely executed.

    Thanks, all of it is recycled lumber. I frist made it for my big pekin ducks, but I sold them for these cute call ducks so now the pen is really roomy for the lil guys. Thats a cool idea about the corrugated plastic panels to allow light in and to keep the weather out Ill have to try that this winter. I got the idea about keeping the food and water on wire from my permade hen house I got thats like that.

    Very nice!! As has already been said--well-thought-out, nicely executed. I love to see folks re-using materials, and you've done a beautiful job of it. Pretty birds, too. [​IMG]
