    After a few attempts of trying to get the ducks to the pond, they took to it. Yeah, I'll go ahead and say it, like a duck to water. Problem is now they won't come back to the pen. I've seen a number of people who post on here and say their ducks go back and forth. I would like for a few to use the pond, but 20 in the pond all the time is going to make a mess of my pond.

    Maybe they'll get tired of it after awhile? [​IMG] When we turn my horse out on her grass pasture it usually takes her a week or two before she'll come in again when I call her. Teehee. I don't know how similar ducks are though. [​IMG]

    I guess we'll see. They look pretty happy though. I wouldn't worry so much about it, but we're about 2-3 weeks away from turning loose some Canada geese on the property.
