    They're so cute. Glad she didn't have problems or trying to hold them in. It's pretty exciting, so far this has been a really good year.

    Yeah It's a shame that most houses don't have much property anymore, some houses we pass have backyards about 30' wide and 20 feet back…we are lucky to have more.

    How big is the pond you're talking about? I don't know a lot about ducks having never kept them, but I fish, and have seen some snapping turtles that could take down a duck easily.

    I used the black crates that cilantro or tomatoes come in at the grocery store and filled with hay or wood chips and they loved in to where two or three can snuggle and sleep.
