plastic coops?
« on: January 11, 2021, 17:47 »
I have inherited three khaki campbells and they are currently housed in an old chicken coop that had been out of use for some time and needs replacing.
I have found the ducks to be more messy than chickens and am considering buying a recycled plastic coop from Solway, Arkus or green frog.

Does anyone have any experience or advise as to which one, if any is best?

I am thinking that I may eventually double the size of the duck flock to 6.

Any advice gratefully received.

I have a Green Frog coop and would recommend them.  Easy to assemble and take apart for a really good clean, plus maintenance free.  I would not go back to wooden poultry housing now.

Ducks are messy so having a plastic coop you can hose out without soaking wood for days would be a bonus  :)

I have two large solway arks from my chicken keeping days, they are expensive to buy new but are a very good size. Cleaning out is very easy and I would always recommend plastic for housing poultry.
Staffies are softer than you think.
