    I ordered three Kiddie Pools for my ducks today. I want to eventually put a small pond in my backyard. I figured since I was paying the freight to have them shipped 300 miles I might as way get several - two big ones and one small one. They take up about the same amount of space when stacked.... then I won't have to pay the freight if I need another one. The freight is more than all three pools. I wasn't planning to go to the big city for a while.... ducks gotta swim. : )

    I went through the hassle of finding a nice kiddie pool for the ducks last summer (they were banished to the garage for a summer after I moved from AL back to chicago, since I moved in with family until I got settled). They HATED it. Ming mei wouldn't go in and would jump right out when I put her in. I tried convincing her to go in with treats, but she hates it. lol. My four newer ducks (I got last november) like the current kiddie pool though, which is good. Ming mei will still stand on her tippy toes up against the pool to gets the treats without actually getting in, lol.
