    Default Duck pond questions

    I need some help with my duck pond for my flyers. It's filthy and stagnant. I think they would do better especially my laying-hens if I could find a way to keep the water clean and also add an aerator. What do other people do that raise ducks? Thoughts and opinions please.

    an aerator won't do much in that puddle. They are for larger ponds that need oxygen to help the anerobic digestion take place. A stock tank you can dump out weekly is probably the best answer.

    I was under the impression that most people use a stock tank they can drain and fill, but I could be wrong.

    Fill it in no way to keep clean.Ducks are just nasty. I use a stock tank 6' round 2 1/2' tall,untill they can fly they do not get swimming water.When my pen is full say 1k ducks I clean it once a week.Also can't tell by your photo's but would add more shade.
    good luck

    Thanks for your reply. There has been more shade added to it. Those pics were taken last winter. Where are you located in E TX? PM me if you want. Thanks.
