    Here they are! Thank you so much for the info![​IMG] @buff goose guy @chickens really
    @PINOAK RIDGE Their names are Arthur and Merlin, and they are Blue Fawn drakes.I got from CL for a really good price, $5 each! They are actually quite tame, they don't really want to be held though.

    Here is their pen/coop! It is 3 X 8 X 2, the actual coop/sleeping area itself is 2 X 3. The floor is welded wire and the sides and the top is chicken wire. As you can see I added a small pool and logs. It took me two days to finish it, I would've finished in one but I didn't have all the materials on hand. I made it myself, and actually the first thing I made myself too! My Dad helped me cut the plywood though. If you want to see updates on them you check out my YouTube channel! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkWQBJkVbyJd3qDqQgtiamg

    Your little guys look even handsomer in these new pictures! [​IMG] And I'm SO proud of you for building such an amazing coop! There's no way in this world I could ever do that, to be honest. [​IMG]

    Great job on building your own coop and finishing it so quickly. Just be careful during the winter, if the top is chicken wire. I would be afraid it wouldn't hold up to ice and snow and wouldn't want it to collapse in on the ducks. You can always put a sheet of treated plywood, marine board or etc over it for temporary top in winter. You may decide to have a little pen building business, to help finance your "duck habit". [​IMG] It looks nice and others may be in the market to buy pens.

    My what handsome fellas. You will really enjoy their big personalities. Are the boys chatting away about their new digs? They look content. Yes, just keep your eyes open for some beautiful girls to add to the collection.

    Have fun with them and enjoy your new additions.

    Thank you! Okay, will they need a heat lamp? You know that is a good idea for a business!

    Yeah they are loving it, I hope. They really like the concrete mixing tub! Mixing tubs work really great.:D I am already looking, do you sell Calls?

    I sure will!:)
