My 10 Pekin ducklings outgrew their brooder in the barn (by which I mean I couldn't handle the soaked shavings and opaque brown kiddie pool water anymore), so this weekend, they went out to their duck house and the pond. They couldn't be happier out there! Here are some pictures of the little cuties: The house my husband built: It's 4x8 with TONS of ventilation. There's a drain in the floor and a gap in the back wall so it can be sprayed clean every day if needed. When you guys said ducklings would be be messy, you weren't kidding! We're only going to keep 1 drake and maybe 3 ducks, so it should be big enough even in the winter with snow on the ground. Happy ducklings in the pond: Any tips on getting them to "go to bed" at night up that big scary ramp and away from the fun pond? Herding them isn't very easy when they tend to run directly into the pond when they see me coming!
