Provide a safe dwelling for local ducks while increasing your knowledge of an outdoor hobby with this magnificent Coveside Unassembled Black-Bellied Whistling Duck House. Black-bellied whistling ducks, also commonly known as Mexican ducks, are known for their long, pink legs and red bills, as well as their grayish brown plumage; these ducks require a larger opening for their habitats, making this unit an ideal option for these unique waterfowl. This naturally appealing set of panels give you a straightforward and simple way to set up this fabulous box for your outdoor space. Constructed from sustainable pine and sourced from a family owned mill, this natural item sports a 6" by 4.5" oval opening, perfect for the needs of this duck species, with the 0.75" thick pine lending superior insulation for ducklings. A generous, downward slanting roof covers the abode to protect against rain and other outdoor elements, with extended slats just beneath either side of the roof providing proper air flow for ventilating the box. The inside of the front panel features a plastic ladder to allow ducklings to cling for a better grip as they leap from nest cavities within two days of hatching, and the bottom panel leaves gaps at every corner for additional drainage and air flow. One side of the home has two panels that are held in place by metal latches, opening easily upward for close up observation and easy cleanings when necessary, and an included bag of pine shavings lets you set up an appealing nesting space. A metal hanging loop on the top of the habitat's back panel allows you easily showcase this durable and hardy unit against a tree or post near water to deter the threat of raccoons, and its natural tone will weather over time to a charming gray complexion with exposure to the outdoor elements. This package contains 7 predrilled and easy to assemble panels, along with included hardware so that installation requires only a screwdriver and can be completed quickly. Make a fun project out of giving a safe shelter to unique and colorful waterfowl with this Unassembled Black-Bellied Whistling Duck House. Assembly required. Made in the USA.
