    This is where Udder Chaos Farms just moved their fowl into for the night, thought I would share!! It's really cool and beautiful! If you're on Facebook I suggest you follow them!

    That's similar to how I have my breeding pens for my chickens. I used plastic garden fence for the sides since I could just staple it up. Also I raised the doors up enough for the chickens and ducks to get under. I have a board for each pen that I screw in the bottom when I'm using them in the summer for separating the breeders and I take the board off in the winter so everyone can come and go as they please. Works out really well. You can see what I'm talking about with the board below:

    Really cool! I have a lot of pictures saved of all the kinds of ideas I want to do if I ever move to a place with a barn, can I save that?

    The white wall, and new boards (they might want to seal them)....won't be that color for long[​IMG] Ducks have "Squirt-poo" !. Looks like they are using sand , not a bad idea, but it is so gray, hope it isn't toxic....since they will eat some. Also notice no waterpans....which would 'discolor the walls pretty quick ,as they fling it everywhere[​IMG]... but I know how nasty mine can get overnight on rubber mats and river rock.... I hose mine daily or EOD, and it is on a slope, which helps.
    It does look lovely, all new and shiny....[​IMG]

    Oh yes I hope by the time I have my own house they invent something that duck and goose poop won't stain..!
