    I know some breeds don't TECHNICALLY need a pond, but I think all ducks should have one. Here is why [​IMG]

    4 and 5 weeks? They're giant. I better hurry up with the house and run! The pond is only a matter of time and the DH knows it.[​IMG]

    Other than sediment (which you can see they kicked up in that video) it is going well. Most of my duckweed froze so I haven't even really begun THAT aspect of my experiment...LOL

    I can, however, say the modified skippy filter does work. I love it.

    I had kiddie pool up for a couple of days but the ducks could not or did not get inside. I ended up with the concrete mixer plastic pan from home depot. Only one duck can get in at a time.

    How do I get them into the kiddie pool?

    Obsessed, put a few steps leading up to the pool. Maybe place a brick inside as well.
