Dandi Gentry’s chicken coop addition!
Come along and see how a chicken coop expands to include ducks, providing ponds, shady play space and lots of fun!
“We’re finished with the chicken coop addition,” Dandi says. “We added a duck run and a shade house, put the heavy metal wire around the bottom, all the way around…and made a door between the 2 sides, chickens and ducks. Overall it turned out pretty good! 🙂 We’re glad it’s finished and we’re going to put a swing on the outside where we can watch them play!”
This is the garden side of the coop addition.
A nice long run with a pond and a duck house was added on Dandi’s already award winning chicken house design. We love the bright colors she paints everything….you’ll see!
The ‘lay’ out!
Now there’s a chicken side and a duck side.
Planting, outfiting and decorating!

Sunny Side Up!
Dandi added a handmade sign as a finishing touch.
Dandi used corrugated metal for letters and screwed them on a sunnily painted board. She says, “Later, I moved my sign to over the windows after I took pictures! I decided it would last longer under the eaves.” We wonder if she’ll be adding pigs and cows to her garden!
“I got my duck’s in a row,” Dandi says, “now what?” Whatever it is, we’ll be watching!
