Hello everyone let me just say that I am new to this thread. And I am looking forward to hearing everyone's ideas as well as reading your post. So let me get to it. I have 6 ducks and many chickens. However I would like for my ducks to have their own house and pond area just for them. We have already started digging the pond one side is 4 ft deep and the rest of it is about 1st deep as we didn't get a chance to finish digging due to all the rain. He's my dilemma. I want the pond to be natural as it is in natural so I really want a Natural pond that blends in with the normal land and to not look as if it was just thrown there. I am working if I can use a pump and filter with no liner because I do want to keep it as clean as possible. Right now it is very muddy looking because we were trying to get dirt out while it is full. #badidea lol. Also they will not stay out of it. I guess they like the muddy mess. Thanks for reading this looking forward to ideas and photos. I have posted a few photos of mine.
