    Very nice. I love the Silkies.

    Do your chickens use that wooden pallet a lot?

    Looks like you need a bigger pool for the ducks! [​IMG]

    Quote:The wooden pallet is more to create some shade area for them, however, some of the 3 month old pullets do like to climb on it. Fortunately no one has decided to roost on it. Everyone goes in the chicken house at night.

    Bigger pool, YES. Believe it or not, I had just cleaned and refilled their Sandbox / Pool about 2 hours before the picture. I have purchased a 100 gallon stock tank that I plan to fill for them to use also. I am not sure how I will keep clean though. Still working on that. I also think I am going to get them another kiddy pool to use.

    Quote:Everyone needs to have some ducks and geese. I love them and they are so fun to watch. They are messy, but well worth the effort.
