|Duck House & Paddock from window|
The ducks can go freely in and out of their house during the day, but we'll still lock them inside at night. Eventually we'll put a perimeter fence around the larger yard, where we'll let them "free range" when we're home, but for now there is just enough electric wire to keep the horses out, which you can see in the rear view picture.

Also, in the rear photo you can see a shade area for the ducks. There isn't much shade out there mid-morning, so we'll be constructing some sort of larger shade roof like this that will be permanent. In the afternoon there's nice shade under the trees.
We have a larger pool for them, but before we put that up we need to put a drain plug into it to make it easier to clean out. That'll be in the next few days. Until then, all ten ducklings still fit in this pool, just barely. As you can see, we're sure having fun with our ducklings!
