    Looking for some ideas for a duck pond in the backyard. I want to get away from the Kiddie Pool concept.

    That's cool! I didn't think about caging it in like that! Thanks for sharing. Do you have a filter system in there? Or is that pointless with the amount of muck ducks make?

    nope,, its SUPER easy to clean... pull the drain , drains out the backside of the pen, rinse out (hydrant at other end) refill,

    I love the ledges in the pond.. they can stand and preen and see out, and I throw treats on them. peas/corn/tomatoes.

    this is what i came up with _ I have since added white rocks around the pond, and a door that shuts them for secure night in the coop
    run = fun, sun and water for the days
    coop area = food and security from the night critters

    Quote:Love it! Great idea on the drain. My husband and I are researching everything before we begin. The kiddie pool concept is fine except for hard to drain and I don't want something more.... nice looking. You know what I mean.
