We recently hatched out 10 Muscovy ducklings this spring. Used to have them in the 1970s and 1980s until they got a wide spread disease and wiped them out fast. This was a widespread kill of muscovies in our area. We have raised them to their present age of 3 months. My how they have grown. We are thinking about slowly letting them have some free range time around the barnyard but put them in their pen at night. The pen is about 30x30' with a enclosed house for protection. We have a large lake but it is about 150 yards from the house and we are afraid to put them on the water because of predators. We bought two of the large plastic kiddie pools for them. But would like anyone's input or suggestions in fixing the pools and areas up for them. Does anyone have suggestions for step or ramps they use for the ducks to be able to easily get in and out of their pool? When you think of duck a lot of people think water. We want them to be happy, but safe too. I welcome suggestions and advice.
