    [​IMG] oh my god! well as i said i did get a flexible bucket for the water due to wonter coming. i chose very carefully thinking the size i got would not be large enough or low enough for the ducks to even attempt to get in...how wrong can a ducky mummy be?!

    Basil was straight in!! nutty duck! cos its flexible he sat in it and pushed his feet on each wall of the bucket...wish id had my camera!

    I was like, um you don't really fit in there. The chickens were not happy as that is (or was) their bucket. [​IMG]

    Yup... My geese think that any bucket big enough to wedge their big 'ol butts into is just the right size! LOL!![​IMG]

    my goose does the same thing, thinks anything with water is his soaking tub. and my ducks do climb into the buckets too.

    Quote:sometimes one of the ducks will be in the orange bucket (which is big enough for a duck bath) and the goose will just climb in. The runners are the hardest for the goose to dislodge - LOL - they just keep on with their bath as best they can with a big 'ol goose butt in their face [​IMG]

    thats funny, if my goose starts to climb into any tub that a duck is in the ducks jump out and run for their lives. they don't want to be raped and pillaged by a big ole goose. [​IMG]
