    I wondered if he was a Buff.....he isn't colored like my female so I haven't ever seen one in person. He is gorgeous. Mine that I just got last week is absolutely gorgeous, so no wonder I thought he was too!

    Lovely ducks!

    I have a similar duck pond. How do you drain it? I am thinking about setting mine in ground and putting a drain in it. (Presently, I step on a side to drain it.)
