Hmm. How much water does a duck need?

    Have one Cayuga at the moment and am planning on at least one more. Currently have a 785 gallon tank in the ground for her (7'x6'x30"deep) and have another that I can sink next to it. Is that enough water for 2-3 ducks? I hope so or I'll be putting in an in-ground pool for them.

    Should be fine just make sure you put a clean out hole in the lowest point (i suggest 4" PVC elbow makes life easier)... Dirty water back for ducks if they have been pooping in it for to long...

    Thanks! We're using it to feed our AP set up so it should remain pretty clean once all the plants are growing.
