Duck Ponds and Bedding

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I have a very small garden and at the back of it my two khaki campbells have a small plastic box as a pool (40W x 60L x 22H cm. I'm thiking of having it 3-4 times as big).

I am getting new grass and soil soon because I only have muck now. What beddings are best for ducks in wet climates? While that's going on I am deciding to get a filter system for the new pool, but I don't know which one to get. Any ideas?

Thanks!:weee

I just built an above ground duck pond for my ducks.  I just put a vinyl pond liner in it and put a drainage pipe in it so I can drain it and clean it.  I didn't put a filter system in it yet, and I'm not planning to as of yet.  I am planning on draining it once or twice a week and then using a shop broom to brush any algae off that may form.  All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results and the ducks are definitely happy with the pond rather than their old kiddie pool.  The pond ended up being 12x8 feet and holds 675 gallons so it's not a bad size for the lil buggers.

This is my pond now, I hope to get a bigger one. As you can see there is not much space around here and an awful lot of muck, so does anyone know a small filter system that might be suitable?
