We bought a 125 gallon pond form last year on craigslist to use for our ducks. Never got around to using it until this weekend my husband felt industrious and started digging a hole to use it for our three Sebastopol Geese. Didn't notice until we filled it that it wasn't level. Oh well, we can adjust that when i pump it out and refill it the first time. There are three sides where we built the dirt up so they could get in. Then i did steps on one side. So far our geese are acting like we put a monster in the middle of the back yard. The goats are enjoying it as a new drinking hole. i'm wondering if the black color is scaring them, since they can't see the bottom. i've seen them walk up on the sides where the dirt is built up to the edge. They are avoiding the stairs i made out of pavers. Any suggestions on how i can make this more attractive? Do i need to put steps inside so they can get out? Maybe we need to do a more gradual slope of the dirt leading up to it? Any ideas appreciated. Pics below.
