    Mine is a dog run, with a nice pool

    And a house made of 4 pallets screwed together to be almost a box, with fence panels screwed on the side.

    My pen for breeding, is an old Tool Bench, (actually like a table) with chain link wrapped around, and a dog house.

    This is my Duck/Rooster House its made out of recycled pallets the most money we probably spent on it is actually the shingles i wanted it to be a fence and a house so my ducks get the grass and my dogs get the cement side of the yard... although my dog can open the gate... but he doesn't eat the bird poop all the time so that's ok

    This is what I have done to get my Ducks to lay in there pens coop. When I first get them obviously you keep them under a light and prepare a place for them outside. I usually put them in a dog house that we have made into a temporary duck pen. We have made a yard for it so they can come in and out on there own. It teaches them it's safe for them inside the dog house and know nothing can get them. Then I move them in the back part of my yard where they all free range. There is one big coop back there with a dog house that looks like the other one. Since I taught them that it was safe they will go in the coop and dog house and lay there eggs. And make there nest. I leave them in the first one until there feathers are all in . I have also gathered up the ducks that have hatched there own babies and put them in the dog house area until there old enough to go out back.

I’m so happy with their new home. Put it together myself and painted it, laid cardboard on the floor then lino samples on the top - nailed down with small nails - to preserve the wooden floor as much as possible. I still have the door knob to screw on as well as paintining the inside and adding a sign. I love everyone’s duck house pictures! So nice to see how creative everyone is. 9D4B1A54-E33B-4E9F-9F82-04300F40D809.jpeg

    I love yours you did an awesome job.

    You could always build your own run probably cost less than buying a ready made one.

    Maybe someone can help you.
