When I first decided I wanted to keep ducks I trawled the net for info
on duck houses. Ducks don't technically need housing, but I wanted to
pen the ducks in during the night, so I could collect their eggs.
Otherwise it is 'hunt the eggs' or, as I discovered, try and get them
before the pukeko do. And pukeko rise early. There is a lot of info
about chicken coops, not so much for ducks.


Eventually this is what we came up with, with some clever design modifications from Klaus, who built it for me. It's a little difficult to see in this picture, but it is an A frame shape, with both sides of
the 'roof' lifting up - one side is up here. The door is to the left of
the photo (open). It has no floor, and there are two wheels on one end
so it is easy to pick up and move around.
