I am getting 3 ducks today. I've been worrying about not have a pond for them to play in. It just dawned on me last night that we have a creek about 50 yards behind our house. It's actually on my hubby's gm property, but when the ducks are bigger it won't be a big deal to them to go there a play. I know for the first few months we'll have to utilize a kiddie pool, but when they get grown, they'll have a blast.
