I can't wait, I plan to pipe in off the well with a float also so that it stays full all year. I'm hoping that my chicken/duck yard will eventually be kind of a mini-orchard with fruit trees, grape vines and other edible plants for them and us.
I'd skip the rocks, gonna be very hard to get the poop out from between them.I’m thinking around 8-12 ft diameter. It would be around 2000 gallons. I’m planning on having a submersible pump with a fountain n the center. Probably would line it with a traditional pond liner and then place rock on top of that.
