    These are pictures of our duck house and pen. The roof lifts completely so that you can clean it out and collect eggs. Window closes tight or can be open to let air through. I currently have six ducks that are free range and have access to several acres during the day. I initially had four ducks and they spent most of their day in the pen, but I hated to see them penned up and they so enjoyed being out. So they spend most of their day outside and come in around 6:30 pm.

    A salmon faverolle that crows and lays midget eggs.
    A gold brabanter that died.
    A buff orpington who hasn't started laying yet.
