Big Ducks New Pool -Pt 1

Originally, this black plastic formed pool was in this section but I pulled it out in early spring 2010.  I spread out the sand and set this space up as a temporary duckling brooder area. They lived there for 3.5 months when I decided it was time to get started on the construction of the new duck pool.
