    Nice work, I like it! If you get some Cinnamon Teal from me they will spruce up the space even more!

    They love the water! I can't wait for the mandarin to get his colors!

    Very nice aviary. What other species beside mandarins are you planning on getting? Also, how often will you have to clean the pond?

    Cinnamon teals and Baikal teals.
    I clean the skimmer once or twice a week and I use a pool skimmer about 2 times a week to try to get stuff of the bottom. So far the pond is clean enough. To me I'm getting more dirt off the plants in there then the ducks haha

    We had truses put on but in the front we shaved the corner off to make it easier to get through. We took a 4x4 from the middle to the back pole. It was a lot of compound miter cuts.
