New and curious about muscovy ducks!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all
I recently bought a house and am wanting to raise a few muscovy ducks. I have a 4'x6' pondd kit that goes 2ft deep, that I would like to use for my ducks. I know they dirty the water rather fast. I don't want to change the water every week, so I'm wanting to use floating pots with vegtables to keep the pond clean. Any ideas on what I can grow in the pond that the ducks won't eat?

Hi and welcome to BYC - great to have you onboard. I'm sorry, but what i know about ducks could be written in large font, on the back of a postage stamp. I hope that NFCs links help you out.

 

All the best
