I'm looking for someone who can replicate a chicken pen that's slightly more suitable for ducks (they can't climb those ramps so easily like Chook's).

My budget is $500 max which depends on size and if you can deliver.

I'm looking for something that is quite large in comparison to the typical chicken ones on eBay, predator proof and has a waterproof area they can sleep in at night (doesn't need any roosts). The rest would just be an open area.

Wheels could be good to move it around if it's a bit smaller. No preference for type of materials. It's going in a small front yard hence my need for it be as suitable as possible. It would house only maximum 2 ducks. Maximum size would be 6mx3m.

Date for completion doesn't matter.

Hi Kel, can do for you about the size you what with a waterproof area and a door to it for cleaning and a gate in to the other area. My offer is for labour and AT fees. The difference would be the cost of materials. If you pay for materials there will be no AT fees on them I'm happy to buy on my trade account so a further discount. The total will not go outside your budget John

Hey me and a mate would be happy to build this, assemble it in Clayton then drive it down?
Hey Kel, Sounds like a fun project and I would like to help you with this task. Your time frame suits me perfectly as I am very busy for the next fortnight. Please take a look at my reviews and if you are happy I reside locally and we could arrange a time for me to come over prior and discuss your needs in greater detail.
Kind Regards,
I could collect materials and build on site for you Kel to your requirements, keep in mind wire mesh and materials will take up a large portion of your budget and will determine the size of the enclosure ultimately. I am very resourceful with materials and happen to have a roll of mesh I am not using that would be suitable.
What is the minimum size you would require? Would you like it roofed? A few more details or a pic of what you had in mind would be very helpful.
Id love to do this I've made similar cages in the past did you want that 500 to cover materials and labour?

Yeah. Have you got any pictures of what you have made in the past Adrian?
I am no good to do this job but perhaps look at this website for ideas :) i found what i wanted on their pages.

Hmmm? Am i not allowed to put a website?

Google search somerzby enclosures...
Hi Kel, could you please upload a pic of what you have in mind or seen om ebay?
Hi Kel. Does it have to be mobile?

Not really, no. If it was smaller I would probably want to move it across the lawn otherwise something bigger can just stay in the same position.
