    I finally bought ducks for my pond. They are almost 2 days old now. They will spend the latter part of the spring and the summer on my 1/4 acre pond. I'll build a shelter for them for the night hours, but we'll see how that goes. I understand ducks are much for going into enclosures, so we'll see. Here is a picture I took of them last night.

    They are so cute! They'll be so spoiled with a whole pond to themselves! Watch out for predators though.

    This is my first experience with any kind of poultry, but I do have a parrot and a couple of parakeets. While the other birds can be messy, I am astonished at how messy these ducks are with their drinking water!!!!!

    Yeah - Very messy. I am going to be seperating the ducks from the chicks. As many had warned, the ducks get things all wet and I don't want the chicks in all the wetness.

    I figure if we seperatet them, the clean up will be easier.
