Re: What do you think of these ducks???

Upper brook Farm, I think best practice with any waterfowl is to provide a pond of some description, even if its a plastic kiddy pool :) I am a Big believer in the opinion that if you cannot provide an animal with what it needs to fulfil its natural behaviours, then its probably best not keeping th...
