My coop and pen just aren't working anymore. When I built them four years ago, things were all good, but it's been through leftover hurricane winds, ice storms, and predators. It also turns into one big river when it rains, and literally has a small channel with water flowing through it like a river. I have chickens and ducks: 4 Muscovies, 1 Magpie, and three Blue Swed Mixes. 1 BR roo and 1 Ancona roo 2 Silkie X EE mix hens 1 Red Sex Link Hen 1 Silkie mama with 5+ babies on the way 1 Barred Plymouth Rock and hopefully about 5 more ducklings to come. We have been wanting to move it to a different place for a long time, and I need to change up the design. Please show me some pics of your duck and chicken houses, but make sure they aren't giant pics because I have dial-up and its SO SLOW! I need to get some ideas, specifically on the floor. I've seen some pics of people with what appears to be wood shavings on the floor. What kind are they, and what are the advantages of them?
