Hello all
Been reading a lot here over the last few seasons - thanks to everyone who posts!
I'm writing from the Hudson Valley, NY. We have two ducks (of the "hatched in 5th grade" variety) who share a space with 8 chickens.
We've decided this year to expand the ducks' pomd and build in some natural filtration. Looking forward to sharing our experience and getting
some advice!
Thank you!

Thanks! They're a lot of fun! And I honestly can't believe how much joy I'm getting out of building this new pond for them!
Still figuring it all out though...hope I do them proud.

When I was a kid I had two ducks I named Casey and Kelly. I loved those little critters!
My mother made me give them to the zoo tho as they ate up all her flowers :(
I did go visit them at the zoo many times.

Awww, they’re cute!
Funny, ours never seem to do much damage when they’re out and about. The chickens, however....grrrrrrr. They’ve lost their privileges.
