New and curious about muscovy ducks!

post #1 of 2
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 there & welcome to BYC.  There are lots of threads on here that discuss your pond question.  I'd suggest using the search bar near the top of the page and type "duckponics".  You'll have lots of reading material on the subject.  :)

 

Ducks are a joy!  Good luck with them.  

Love my family...8 ducks, 4 cats, 2 dogs, a boyfriend, grown-up son & BYC lamps!
