Because everyone needs more than one obsession!
This page is about 2 more of mine. It's about my Mandarin ducks but also about the enclosure that we are creating to put them in. It has been a labor of love that has been going on for quite some time. It has required raising the height of a block wall twice, building new concrete block walls and a patio cover, moving lots of dirt, designing the space and filters. We are finally ready to start the pond.
And then there are the incredibly beautiful Mandarin Ducks. They are a little hard to keep because they are great flyers and need places to roost. They like to roost in trees.
I have 2 male ducks who recently got girlfriends.
It is possible we will have baby ducks for sale at some point.
The koi are currently living in a 300 gallon Rubbermaid tank, it won't be to long until they can be moved to the pond. There are exotic goldfish as well, I will have to take some photos of the goldfish and their tank (home made of course)....they are not going in the pond.
