duck coop - duck shelter - duck protections
This unique Duck House is 4' by 6'. ( The shippable size is 3 by 6 )
It features A-Frame construction, using the same high quality
hardware as our famous chicken coops. And it is predator proof.
The roofing material is a tough, rippled polycarbonate. It offers
shade in the summer, but allows light to illuminate the interior.
All doors latch shut for security. Your little quackers will consider it "duck heaven."
A few years ago, we lived on a 16 acre farm with a pond. Nothing is as delightful as finding a mob of little yellow fluffballs tailing their mother to the pond.
Unfortunately, little ducklings have many predators - hawks, snakes, turtles, and raccoons..
We lost several ducklings, which gave us the notion of making a protective structure- DUCK COOP, like this one...
Portable Duck/Chicken Coops
We hand sculpt the skids.
Good shade during the day and good protection during nightime!

I thought I had made a nice DUCK coop, but our CHICKENS disagreed.
They have officially taken over
They went in and checked it out, and decided to stayed there. (Well, I guess they might think it's our best chicken coop design)!
So my hubby added two roost bars and a nice nest box for them.

Predators, like foxes and raccoons tend to dig right at the spot
where the coop meets the ground. You can lay galvanized wire mesh
on the ground, along the sides of the coop to keep them out.
However, in our own experience, even though we don't use this method on our farm, no predator has been able to get into any of our
many chicken coops - not even a snake. We do have lots of wild critters though, and we recently lost several prized hens when we forgot to close one of the coops for the night.
Most digging predators cannot dig enough in one night
to get under the coop. Just put coops on level ground, and keep an eye out for developing holes. Move the coop if you see a hole beside it.
If you live in fox, or marten country (fast diggers) then you should use precautions like the wire mesh idea, above.
