I think I made a mistake.

    So I was browsing around on wish the other night and found this pool. Thought cool it is rectangular and has a drain on it should be awesome for the ducks. The only measurement I read was it was like 23 inches tall. No big deal specially for 15 bucks. Well it got delivered today and it seems this pool is much larger than I thought.

    Can you really give them too much room?

    Looks good to me. Ducks love diving and swimming, so you can be sure even one duck would use every inch of that pool as it grows.

    So it won’t be to big for Black East Indies and maybe a few Welsh harlequin or Cayugas ?

    I have a huge pool for mine. It takes longer for them to get yucky.

    Lol I agree now. When it appeared on my doorstep today though it was much bigger than I thought. I don’t know how I got lucky enough to get it for 15 bucks including shipping. The little kiddy pools around here are $15 alone. Now that I realize it seems no pool is too big for duckies I guess I can enjoy the bargain.
