    I clean my pools every day, well not clean, but I empty out and put clean water in, I really need to scrub the inside of the pools. The reson I have 3 pools is....I went to K Mart to get a pool and they only had 1 little pool left, so went in and paid for it ($3.33). Got home threw it over the fence and when I went thru the gate to grab it to fill it up I noticed it was quite thick, there was 3 pools all like stuck together. Did I go back to K Mart and pay for the other 2...erm...erm.... NO!!!!!!

    your pekin is a jumbo, right?

    DH doesn't want any more ducks because Blue and Cadbury are noisy and he doesn't like them on the deck (or more accurately, pooping by the back door... neither do I, but a bucket of water removes poop or the hose lol), but I still want my pekin!

    Gorgeous!! I clicked through without seeing who the post was from. I looked at the first couple and thought, "That drake sure looks familiar..." scrolled back up and... that's Finn! [​IMG] Looks like he's having a hey-day!!

    Your ducks are sure pretty, and not just those you got from me. [​IMG] I can't tell which one is your stanbridge white though--he blends in with the pekins--is he in the pictures?
