    Hey guys!
    I need your help!
    The kid size pool is getting way to small for my ducks!
    I want to give my ducks the best life style I can. I already take my chance with my ducks and let them run wild, they also can fly away if they want. They will fly away in the morning but right before dark I call them home and lock them up to protect them at night. So far all of them have returned. I got pretty lucky!
    However, they have decide my inground pool is a better swimming area.. My mother isnt very happy about this and I know is cant be safe for them so we put a cover on it.
    I want to build a pond of my own but where do I start? how big? etc.
    If you could post pictures of your pond or tell me what you did with yours. That would be great!
    Thank you!

    For us and our thirteen runners and buffs, I use two concrete mixing pans and a kiddie pool. They can be dumped, rinsed and refilled in minutes.

    I am glad to read you are providing safe night shelter for them. There is a range of management styles here. Hope someone with experience with a pond can help you out.
