    My dh and some friends have been working on the duck coop which as you can see has a pond. We were hoping to have it finished last week, but the rain ran us all inside. This was last week when I couldn't stand it any longer and wanted the ducks to experience their new pond. They've been using a kiddie pool and as you can see Daffodil especially loves her new pond. When you hear what sounds like a burp..that was actually her. I'll have to take some more videos as this is just a taste of how wild they get.

    We've learned a lot from BYC so thank you all for sharing your pics! It really helped.

    Kuntry, Thank you! I must say I've seen some that are much better than ours on here, but I am very pleased with our first little pond and more importantly..the ducks are too [​IMG]

    My dh and his friend dug the hole, and then we lined it with a pond liner. It was much easier than I thought it would be, but my dh's friend used to install ponds for a living so he was a great help. They made sure to have a slope to one side so the ducks could get out easily. Another of our friends used to raise ducks himself, so he's been a great help to us as well. We all had a lot of fun watching them.

    I was adamant about having the rocks around the edge..lol! That was the one thing I wouldn't let them change my mind about.

    Cetawin, it is a lot of hard work, but it's so rewarding when you see them in it [​IMG] . I hope we can see your pics when you're finished with your TWO ponds!

    They are spending their first night in their new coop, and we just walked in, and they were still enjoying their pond.
