    hi , i am building a new duck coop for a friend, and was wondering would 16x4x2 high be big enough for 14 ducks , and was thinking of putting slatted floor in it

    Is the coop just for night time or all day? If all day, then it is big enough for 6 ducks, absolute maximum. More like 4 though, for them to be comfortable. If it is just for locking them up at night then it is big enough for 14, provided it is well ventilated. 2 feet high is low though. I'd aim for 3 feet if possible so they can flap a bit.
