duckling setup in summer, raft to help them get out, rocks on outside and inside seemed to work better (more stable I guess)

I like this wire/snow fence circle for moving the young ones about on grass in the summer, nice not to have to worry about them flying over, but nice to have something for shade/shelter in there too.
We would just lift the sides of the pen and they would walk along to new grass.




Pond made out of a water tank with a drainage plug. They never did like their ladder/ramp, instead choosing to clamber out over the side.



Ducks in winter, insulated house(no heat lamps needed), outside water with submersible deicer in it.

Your ducks look smug. Hope mine (fingers crossed for a good hatch) can be as happy. Great pics, thanks for sharing.

Well these were GWducks ducks, so I guess they could look smug, now the ducks are all MINE!
(He gave me ducks for Mother's Day, so now I am the one in the duck bizness, good thing I have the setup already)
This time for brooding, I am using those wire rabbit hutches with the removable tray in the bottom. A heat lamp suspended inside and I did wrap some foil bubble wrap around the outside of the wire cage on three sides to kind of keep the heat in for the first couple days.
I think you will really like ducks Uno. A fellow who bought a trio of Saxony from my son last weekend, now wants 20 more...
good thing I have more hatching Very Happy

How does that tenplast last? It really looks nice, and must keep the drafts out really well. Question

Thank you both so much for explaining how great this tenplast is. cheers

I am definitely going to look into prices.

I only need possibly 2 sheets, to cover the front of my coop in the winter, and high winds/rain. Have it

so it can go on and off fairly quickly and easily. Love your greenhouse, I'm not sure you can grow much

of anything in alberta without one. At least for tomatoes Yummy. Smile

I do believe if I came back in another life, I would come back as one of your chickens or dogs. Lol.

What a beautiful life. cheers Again, thanks for your lovely pictures. So wonderful. Smile
