Somewhere for my ducks to swim

Postby giblet » Sat May 31, 2014 2:04 pm

I have a pink plastic laundry bowl for my three ducks to swim in, but now that they are becoming full size ducks it's far too small for them! Any ideas for creating a swimming hole for them? I'm not sure if I should dig a pond, buy a bathtub or find a kiddie pool. (Anyone know where I can get kiddie pools?) I was going to get one of those massive metal bowls at the market, but I am afraid it will get too hot.

Do it properly, I say. Dig a nice big pond for them (or pay someone to dig it) line it with heavy plastic or maybe concrete, and make it a great garden feature.

I've thought about doing that but am worried about mosquitoes.

A couple of fish will handle the bugs.

Either way, how about a photo update for the CEO aunts and uncles?

Even waterfowl deserve anonymity on CEO, don't they?

Sure, sure... anonymity. Or gravy, gravy's good too.
