Would this be a decent sized duck house for a pair of muscovies ??

    I would say no, no, maybe. Your largest is only about 9 sq feet. Muscovy are BIG. I would say that as long as they are only in there at night EVER, a pair of muscovy would be okay. I don't think that it would be enough space for anything else. Just my opinion with help from Storey's guide

    Ah ,o.k....

    Its for a pair (plus a possible mallard ,if I can ever find one [​IMG])

    It would only be for at night ,or cold snaps ,or when it really starts to pour.
