    Built this today with my day off...

    What do you think, constructive feedback wanted.

    The ducks are East Indies.

    Are you going to let them free range with the chickens once they get use to your place?

    Quote:Excellent point, I haven't taken that into consideration, the door from the coop, however, opens up and provides shade for them.

    Where do they sleep at night? They don't need a LOT for shelter, but they should have a roof and 2 sides to block the wind.

    Do you have a drain plug in the bottom of the pool? If you install one it will make it a lot easier for you to dump it out for refilling.

    Things can dig underneath, things can go over the top, things can reach through and tear off heads.
