    Momma is almost pure white, There primarly the wifes and i thought they were suposed to be all white like that?
    The pond has been a work in progress we started last summer and stopped when winter hit. Its about 30 x 15 and chest deep at the deep end. There still plans for a water fall and bog but, the people have been breeding [​IMG] also around here, and the wife is pregnant with our first [​IMG] so were taking a break on the major construction part of the water fall, but we well do the bog this summer.
    We been very suprised how well momma has been for her first go at raising babies, instinct is a wounderous thing. Shes clamed the whole pond and no other passer throughs have been allowed into her area. A set of wild duck were taking a look at the pond flying over the other day and she went nuts quacking and raising all kind of kane, so they wouyld go elseware.
    They are for sale if ya live near VA beach and want some let me know.

    What beautiful babies and such a good mama! I'd take some if I were closer!

    Love that pond, too. We really need one for our flock since the kiddie pool gets dirty so fast.
