The solid, raised construction, numerous wire-mesh vents and compact size make this coop a comfortable, safe home for your ducks - winter and summer/rain or shine.
Cleanup is easily accomplished from outside - no crawling inside the coop - using the hinged roof access. Three floor-level nesting boxes also with a hinged roof make gathering eggs easy.
Using just basic tools - circular saw, jigsaw, hammer, electric drill/screwdriver, etc. you can easily build this over the course of a weekend.
Painted a pretty historic brown with white 'gingerbread' trim, a cedar shingle hinged roof and black barn hinges, the house is attractive as well as functional. The vinyl linoleum floor inside is ready to be covered with shavings/straw and along with the hinged coop roof makes cleaning a breeze. With metal mesh air vents and three nesting boxes on ground level also with a hinged roof, the coop will make a comfortable and safe home for your ducks winter and summer.
The house measures 4' x 6' not including the nesting boxes - large enough for up to 6 ducks - and has three attached nesting boxes (each approximately 12" square) with a hinged lid to collect the eggs without having to go inside, side air vents with latching doors, a latching front round vent and a latched door with a ramp complete with safety railings for your ducks to get in and out. The house also has a hinged roof for easy access for cleaning, refilling food and water.
Designed to sit inside a large run, you can instead easily build an attached pen of your own design (shown in the photos but not included in the plans) on the side opposite the hinged roof.
