So as far as a pond goes, an old kiddie pool will do just fine and it would be ridiculous of me to think that I could somehow
turn it into an unfiltered pond using natural oxygenating plants that will keep the pond clean so I do not have to dump it?
SOunds like that would be a bad idea, or that the ducks would just eat the plants anyway.
Thanks for the advice on the banana plant leaves, was trying to be economical.
I'm pretty psyched, I have a big worm compost bin, and our kitchen waste goes into, but soon
enough some of that waste can be used as feed for the ducks, which I plan to free-range a few hours
each day, so I imagine for treats the ducks can have a few worms from my bin(s)... cycle of life all in a backyard!
p.s. also nervous that I will royally screw up duck ownership... is it super hard? I'm pretty diligent, and organized, I don't imagine it will be
crazy difficult, mainly worried I'll annoy neighbors (though they have a 4yr old kid who would prob love to play with ducks).
