Hey guys, It's been a while since I've updated on here. Our two ducks, Richard (the Runner) and Party (the Mallard) refuse to roost in the house I built them. I don't think they like the stairs, or they would just rather sleep under the house. Do you have any suggestions? I'm about to sell this house and plan to build them a basic run with a simple roof for shelter unless I can come up with something else. I was thinking of a Hoop Coop, using 4 or 6 gauge cattle wire and chicken wire. We have limited space and our two ducks are free range when we are home. Another question: Who uses straw? How many layers and how often do you clean it out? We were using mulch, but that's proven to not be good as it stays wet all the time.
