    This is my new coop. Its 3 1/2 by 7 1/2 feet. I have have 5 chickens 4 Ducks and 1 turkey. The chickens and turkey love it but the ducks prefer to sleep outside. Its fences in now. The whole pen is about 20" by 12". What do you think? The roof is on hinges for easy access to the eggs.

    Is the top of the pen covered? Animals will crawl over the top or fly down from above.

    I like the design of the shelter. As long as it is in a pen that is predator-proof, it should be good.

    Critters will dig under the edge of the fence if there is nothing to prevent that. And raccoons will reach through fence, if they can, and grab a sleeping duck.
