    Bail and fill, bail and fill, bail and fill, bail and fill...............

    Actually, it was very cheap. Those kiddie pools are around $15 and our neighbors gave us their left over landscape bricks. Mulch is free in our area, rocks were found, plants I transpanted from diff. areas of the yard.

    I had requested a Duck Pond/Pool sticky be added to the sticky index last week. I was told by Terrie if I started one to let her know and she would review it. If it's informational she can add it. Soooo, I will give her this link and if you are in favor of adding this thread to the sticky index - please pipe in (no pun intended [​IMG] )!

    I think the pool/pond idea is great, but we wanna see whole aviaries, for those that have them. Be it for mandies, woodies, or tamies... I have to do a whole search to see pens and share ideas, and its not that easy to find the threads. NEW STICKY!!!

    That's a good idea to add the aviaries/runs to the Duck Pond/Pool pictures sticky thread link.

    Of course a separate thread of them would be cool too [​IMG]

    I have a question for all of you duck pool experts. I will be getting one of those big $15 pools from Walmart and I was wondering what would be the best idea for a step up, in, and out of the pool for my scovies? Would you recommend cinder blocks or...?

    Before we buried the pool in the ground, we used big rocks for awhile and switched to pavers stacked like steps.
