Hi All,

Very nice to meet you Jason, I'm sorry I know nothing about ducks except they are very proficient poopers. Hope duck folks can tell you how to keep the 'fumes.' down

Thanks for the welcome all!

I am getting the garden redone and was thinking to getting the duck area done with pea gravel something smooth. I just need to find something that i can spray every few days that will break down any poop, bacteria, mold extra

for the bedding think ill go with the pine bedding heard good things and seems cheap. maybe add some of that stall fresh stuff as well

the coop im looking at a plastic one something i can disinfect and pressure wash once a week keep things fresh
