    Confined ducks have it made at your house!


    And any duck at night has it made there too!

    Where did you find a pond that large and how do you keep it so clean? I'm in search of a new one x.x

    If you see a woman with her hair in a bun and a sleeping bag under her arm sneaking in at night, that's me.

    Quote:I got it at Menards !! its called the Key Largo, its like a 250 or 270 gal pond,, I put a tub drain in the bottom and hooked it up to PVC pipe .. I drain, hose down, refill. I have a water hydrant at the opposite end..Now that I have seven ducks I change the water everyday but i could do it everyother day ... I put stock tank heater in for winter and did not have one problem last winter.

    Love your set up! I always say if I win the lottery (although I'll actually have to DO the lottery first lol) that I am going to built an Eden Project type dome over my entire house and garden (Non-Brits I'm not so sure how famous the Eden Project is but it is enormous domes with plants and quails living under them: http://www.edenproject.com/) I actually think that you have the closest thing I have seen lol! It is wonderful! I will be joining Amiga with the sleeping bag and what the heck, the bun also! Love it! Love your ducks toooo! Maybe me, my sleeping bag, my bun and my 4 calls can join you? xxxxx
    PS
    This is a bit of a long message just to say 'love it' cos the ducks are in bed and I've had a glass of wine xxxxxx
