    The duck run only took me 2 weekends to finish. One to frame and one to put the wire on.

    The framing completed. It measures 10'X15'.

    The door is on. (and it actually works)

    Wiring on. Just need to finish the house and they can move outside.

    I used a modified dog crate, Great Dane size, for their house. I put 2X4s on the exterior corner. I have it covered with a tarp because it was a little chilly when they moved outside and they were only 4 weeks so not fully feathered.

    They moved outside 5 days ago. They are doing great and getting used to their freedom. I can't wait until they are a little older and I can leave them without food and water overnight. Such little slobs! [​IMG]
