    I took their pool away because they got it so poopy so fast, and in this heat, too many flies were showing up for it regardless of traps, strips, fly bots, and me sitting out there with a swatter. [​IMG]

    So, they get a shower until I buy a much smaller pool that doesn't waste as much water every dump. Cleaning everyday, too much wasted water. Infant sized pool, instead of a 6 footer.

    Little mallard decided just standing under it works too...

    And a little container for nose cleaning, but I think they think it's a tub. [​IMG]

    Ah, the little game I call "hose the babies" -- they love it.

    They're really cute, and look to be enjoying their shower! I dont' have any ducks......Do you keep them for eggs just like chickens?

    Quote:Not yet, I have many months before they even think about laying eggs. Depending on how they taste is if we'll hatch more than we eat or vice versa. I haven't ever eaten a duck egg before.
