    Summer is not too far off and I need some inspiration.... Please show me your swimming setups, cleaning systems/tips, and how they get in and out! I need to get started before that Texas heat makes me hide indoors! Too bad there isn't a special Pinterest board for this!

    I use two 50GAL troughs and a kiddy pool for the big flock and a 40GAL trough for my calls. Nothing fancy here... the calls just fly into their trough lol

    The others are able to climb in the troughs, pool, i do have a wood log but they ignore it, scovies have massive claws that they use to climb. That is the lower 50GAL i have.. sorry nothing fancy here, i know their is a thread where people have put up some very elaborate pools.
