    Well, mine live in here with the chickens:

    I love it and they love it! They had another shelter before (the bottom half of my old wood chicken coop) but I know they prefer this one because they moved themselves in without me having to work with them on it. The old shelter is still up and they ignore it completely.

    That one is 8 x 12. I have a smaller one too that's 8 x 8. They are great coops, and pretty inexpensive to make too!

    This is what I built from old window frames and a pallet crate. You can see the whole process on my profile. It's kind of small, but then I only have three ducks.

    The first picture above is a 4' x 6' Shed with fencing we used when we had 20 Ducks. The other pictures are the different angles of our new 11.5' Round Hut for our 40 Ducks. Still finishing the siding but Winter came.
