Duck Pen

It's supposed to be a duck only club, but it hasn't worked out that way. There are three roosters in there, only one of which isn't on the freezer list...and the peahen. She's the real boss in there. Anyways, the duck pen was made to be coyote and hawk proof, but the layout inside wasn't ergonomic. I cleaned it all out and moved things around to fix all that. The "pond" gets emptied twice daily into an unused area where we will again plant some seeds so that nitrogen rich water won't get wasted.

The doghouse has already been voted out by the peahen when she landed atop it and knocked it down. I'm leaving the upsid0e-down pots and ladder in place since the birds like to roost on them. Hopefully this deisgn will work much better than before.
