There are a couple of people who have done that. Hopefully they will see this soon.
Alright, awesome. I am curious on what your thoughts and everyone elses on the design I have made in the photo below? I have changed up a fair amount from the previous one posted. The Ducklings will be let in with the rabbits on hot days to use the pool. The older ducks will be let out to free range...
Would the 2 green X's representing trees be in the way of moving their enclosure?Their pen will be against the chicken coop but will be like tractor that way they can be moved out when we want them to eat grass and what not.
The two tree's (greens X's) will be inside their enclosure. We may also extend it even further by adding on 5 more feet or so to go around another tree which will help keep us from fighting everything while mowing. We will use something to cover the base of the trees at least 2 ft high to keep rabbits from chewing on them. -> They will have quite a few wooden "playsets" they can chew on.Would the 2 green X's representing trees be in the way of moving their enclosure?
Right! Our ducks aren't too bad but I don't want them in there unless it is 85+ degrees that way they can have the kiddie pool too lol. Ohh and it would just be ducklings that are old enough to be outside but sneaky enough to get out of the fence😅I am enchanted by this method! I inadvertently did this last year, when I had 2 supposed buck rabbits free ranging in my goat pen. One ended up being a doe. I wasn't set up to raise rabbits, so sold the doe and babies. Then the buck sadly had a fatal accident a few months later. He was very bonded to my goats and was always bossing them around. Quite the character!
Anyhow, if you're going to have ducks in there, you will need to move that pen pretty often. You're probably aware that ducks are very messy and create a lot of mud by splashing around. Chickens will raid rabbit feeders, if they aren't kept away. Don't know if ducks will do that, too.
Question, why a kiddie pool for the rabbits? Drinking?
The pool for drinking and I read a few different people give it for them to swim. During the winter I will probably use it for something else... If the ducklings are in there they will go from their pen to the rabbit's and the pool will be clean the same time. Overall, trial and error. I have mature ducks that actually are not messy with their pool until the end of the day it is somewhat messy. (I used to have some mixed breed ducks and they were a terror when it came to cleanliness lol.I'm curious about the pools as well. Ducks and water =big mess..period. We free range ducks to help keep the mess down to a minimum, but still every water bucket is a opportunity for them to make a mess. Pools are great for ducks but I wouldn't add that to the rabbit pen.
