    Yeah, there's no keeping 'em out of the pool. I just can't convince them they belong in the baby pool. If we are swimming, they fly over the gate and insist on joining us. Other than that they keep to their side of the yard. [​IMG]

    Have to admit it's pretty funny and they're really pretty. On a serious note though, I would clip their wings. I would be very worried about them drinking the pool water and chemicals that keep it nice.

    I'm thinking it's time to buy a decent sized stock pond or something for them. And get a higher piece of plywood. I'm surprised my big boy can get over the current one. Fortunately they only take interest when we are in the pool. (I did make it sound like they were in there all the time!) But yeah, I don't want them to drink the water and I'd prefer to not swim with duck poop! [​IMG]
