    This is after a days worth of clean up
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] I went ahead and went with a sand base. I have one more bag to put down. I also did alot of cleaning
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] I took the wire down... so the ducks are blocked from it tell we get it back up. But it was too hard to clean threw that little whole... it lets me know how much weight I have gained since I made it thou.


    A lot of clean up!

    It ended up taking 6 bags of rock... and I still think one more would make it nice. Got the make shift wiring done today. The wiring will get paneled in. One side being a gate. the other side being fixed. I am going to leave the top open. I'm not planning on having birds that can fly out, and plan on keeping the ducks in the main run.

    I'll take a better picture in the morning. I am planning on adding fake plants. I will keep an eye on it to make sure no one tries to eat them.

    Taking a break for a few weeks.....

    It's looking very nice. Keep the pictures coming. I think some plants (that don't get eaten) would be a really nice addition to this.

    How deep is the gravel, and what type of ducks are you keeping? Looks good. Getting ideas for making my dh crazy with this funny farm I'm making.
