Default Ducks in the Pool

Came home to some unexpected visitors this afternoon.....







Little ones were having a hard time getting out, so I made them a ramp.

Hard to imagine how those cute little boogers can turn into something as ugly as an adult muscovy duck haha pretty neat though for sure! I had a friend all through school that had a pair of mallards come every year and raise a batch of little ones in their pool. The hen even nested in the same spot in the bushes every year

Don't run the pump or you will suck them in the skimmer. Get rid of the fast they will ruin the water. The poo every 15 minutes and make a mess.

That's cool. I see it a lot servicing pools. Be careful with the skimmers. I had to pull out a basket one time full of drowned babies with the mom duck just looking at me. Some of those skimmers suck real hard.

24 hours later they were gone. Double checked the skimmers, no casualties.
