    A few years back we had a pair of pheasants and we built a pen for them. While the pheasants were in the pen they killed all the plants out. Now that they are gone I would like to put plants in it and keep ducks or quail or something. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best bird to house here, while still being able to decorate the encloser with plants and things.


    Thats the pen they will be kept in. the shed is 6 X 6. and is where I will hatch birds and brood them, so it will have heat. 3 x 6 area will be there inside coop area. The two runs can be divided each are 7 x 8 1/2. One has a watergarden. Can be divided.

    Ducks, quail, chickens, pheasants.

    All will do the plants in. (ducks would destroy the quickest)

    Ever thought of putting in fake plants?... on second thought, I'm just imagining an impacted crop with plastic leaves in it.
