So, after a unique series of events (in the street) I ended up with two ducks (muscovies.) We have 7 chickens, which is surrounded by wet, muddy field. The ducks gave a small washtub that they can bathe in. We weren't prepared for the ducks and have no permanent solution for a pond. If we dug a hole it would fill up with water, but the water would turn green and terrible because the water doesn't change, it's basically stagnant. I'm not sure what to do, they obviously want to swim, they are digging holes in the mud and splashing in the puddle they'd make. Any help on a permanent solution would be appreciated. Thanks.
