    Point hose at nearest mole hole and flush out all remaining worms.

    My ducks and Muscovy have made a mud hole big enough to breed in. lol. The smaller ducks bath in it when the fresh water from the emptying of the pools is in it.

    Mine does the same thing. She wants nothing to do with a clean pond but if there is a tiny mud puddle in the yard she will find it. She only wants to bathe in dirty water....darn dirty duck

    Quote:OMG!! Love the heart shaped puddle! [​IMG] My scovies have created their mud hole right off the front porch walkway. Such a wonderful sight to wake up to in the morning with mud and duck poop smeared all over the walkway. Now if that aint love, what is........?
