    Count me in on this request, now that I have four little, newly hatched call ducklings!

    My Cayuga pair do not / will not use a duck house. They're roaming, ninja yard guard ducks.

    But I bet these little darlings will absolutely need a duck house!

    (Thanks for posting the request so I can tag along and see what folks offer!)

    my pond is awesome.. I pull the plug ,, it drains in 5 min... I have a hydrant on the opposite end, hose it down (bleach once a week) and refill... easy as pie..
    the pond has
    shelves (which is for plants) but works perfect to throw their treats on for them to easily eat . ... or they sometime stand on to get out of the water to preen.. I fill the pond about 2 in Over the shelves.. I have had it for 8 months and wouldnt change a thing. I got it at Menards.. Its called the Key Largo... I change the water every other day and I run the hose outside the pen alot for them to play in and my water bill is only 30 dollars more a month... (and I use alot )...

    I know this is an old thread but I need to ask, how did you attach the plastic drain pipe to the ponds drain plug?

    I love all of your set ups !!!
