I have 2 swede ducklings (I think-- the girl has a pouf on the back of her head?), and will prolly be getting 2 more this weekend after mother-in-law's church's Easter egg hunt (they want duckies and chickies for the children to see-- and I get to take them home). What sort of houseing will they need?

is a lean-to type shelter sufficient, or do they need something more?

I'm not too concerned about preditors-- we've not had many, they will be inside a fence, and we have a good "chicken dog"

Just about anything with 3 sides will work for shelter. It's just to give them a place to get in out of the wind or rain which they will probably want to be out in anyways if they are like mine! Just keep it out of a low area so the floor will stay dry.
