    Thank you so much, it means a lot. I’ve found a ‘dog pen’ on amazon that consists of 8 panels that can be rearranged so I was thinking of buying that and then adding chicken wire/mesh to the top and outside so nothing can get in (or out) and then maybe some tarpin for cover on one end. Never would have had such ideas if it wasn’t for you and everyone on this website who’ve been so helpful!

    My hubby built this for me as a Christmas present. Lots of room and lots of predator protection. It’s a 20’x20’ pen, which is covered from top to bottom in 1/4 inch hardware mesh. I also dug down 2 feet deep and 1 foot out and attached the hardware mesh to the perimeter of the pen and then back filled it to protect from digging predators. He also built the duck house and added another area behind it, in case it’s too hot to sleep inside the duck house or if one of the duckies just wants some privacy. It’s been “duck approved” by the flock and receives two thumbs up (if ducks had thumbs, that is...).;) FCADA0FA-2765-4607-A48C-D28D3E9D963D.jpeg 7E3A6AB3-7057-499B-889C-A88AC494F70C.jpeg E71F7876-EBAB-4273-8523-0156FE0AD0DC.jpeg
