How to feed your duck without really trying

with one comment

This is a wallowing pool for the ducks. This is so easy to assemble even kids can have a try on a single weekend. First you will need, as what was used here, spare hollow blocks. For a cheaper alternative you can use old sacks filled with sand instead of the blocks. Next line them to form the size of tarpaulin that will be used as lining. Fill with water and there you got yourself a duck’s wallowing pool. And now if you’d like to feed them without really trying, toss in some duckweed or azolla. I grow a combination of both. While on the water the ducks can feed on the floating greens, when they are not around the azolla and duckweed can thrive and multiply. Replace them with new stocks when the ducks have fed on all. As for the water, they also need to be replaced from time to time.
