New pond and run build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have about a days worth of work into the new pond and the covered run project. My four ducklings are getting huge and definitely won't fit into the pond where the khakis are. (They are most definitely paying attention to the fuzz balls running around invading there space)

The run is an extension of the current pond area and extends 40 feet down the side of the house and is about 25 feet wide.



The new pond is 8x4 and is about 450 gallons. I was going to do a much bigger pond but I got this liner for next to nothing so it at least buys me some time if I want to do the full pond.



Here are the four newbies hard at work helping me finish the duck yard.
