    Ok, Well My pen where my ducks and goats are kept is uneven, and when i tip my pools over the water seems to drain right threw the middle of the pen.

    Those of you with goats might understand, that goats do not like water, and therefore get very grumpy when their feet get wet, lol.

    So, should I dig something like a drainage stream through the side of the yard on the fence line?

    I was thinking that that way I could have a not so wet yard as well as the ducks will have a new place to play.

    Any other suggestions, compliments, or advice??

    You could install a drain plug in your water tubs attached to a hose and drain them out the side to another part of the yard. Garden areas especially benefit from duck tea.
