Duck Float

After receiving three ducklings from a friend, I wanted to have a safe haven for nesting. As I finished the project, we determined we had three drakes—so no nesting. Still a nice accent to the fish pond. The idea was taken from a internet item and built with cypress board culls from the local building supply store. I used 2 layers of 1/2” blue board foam cut to fit under the base for flotation. It was a fun project working out the design for a floating hexagon.

Very nice. I gotta do one of these one day. We lose ducklings to the turtles in our pond, this would be a nice refuge.

Just happened upon this project. It’s been 3-1/2 years and I’m wondering how this has held up? If it’s still there do the ducks still come to it every year?
