What is DuckHut?
For decades people have been raising wood ducks. Some for hunting, some simply for love of nature. Whatever your reason for raising these beautiful birds, you've come to the right place. DuckHut is committed to providing you with the highest quality, easiest to use duck housing available today.
In addition to providing a great product, we also are striving to be your source of information for housing and raising wood ducks. Our FAQ page has a great deal of information for getting started.
DuckHut was created to fix many of the problems that it's wood counterparts created. The most important of these are, durability and ventilation. DuckHut is made of an exterior grade Polypropylene, making the box immune to rotting and will look great for decades. The ventilation was designed with the birds comfort in mind. Too much and the Mother will feel exposed and too little she will overheat. Duckhut also comes with a chick ladder installed, for when the babies are ready to leave the home.
Some of the other features are meant to benefit you, the conservationist. DuckHut is lightweight and easy to install. With the included mounting brackets, you can install the house in minutes. Also, cleaning old bedding out is far easier than with other boxes. With the push of two buttons the nesting tray comes out easily.
- Simple installation
- Durable and UV resistant
- Ideal ventilation
- Removable nesting tray for easy cleaning
Wooden Duck House
- Difficult to mount
- 3-5 year lifespan
- Little to no ventilation

Maintaining a safe and comfortable temperature for your ducks is a critical factor in your success. The internal temperature of the nesting box ultimately comes down to two factors: insulation and ventilation.
DuckHut has a perfect combination of both of these factors. The ventilation on the sides and top of the DuckHut allow hot air to escape while the plastic provides just enough insulation to even out the fluctuations of temperature that occur throughout the day.
Wonderfully built and ducks love them!
They are a wonderfully built our ducks love them and have never had problems change out straw during off seasons. Great design. Love them. Will buy more in the future!!
This is one of the best products made!
This is one of the best products made. Packaged safely and easy installation. After placing in our lake we had wood ducks stop by and check out within 2 hours. They moved in the next day. Would order again and we highly recommend.
Great Product, well made along with easy installation.

Wonderful Product! We have 6 of these on our pond and 2 in the timber around our home. This spring we had more wood ducks on our pond than we have ever had.
