Duck Hero of the Month!

Livia and her husband and six-year-old son rolled up their sleeves and rescued and removed three abandoned ducks from a city pond where they were being subjected to cruelty by abusive kids.

Rescuing ducks and geese is not as easy as it may sound (and we know it!), so we're always so impressed when people step up and help out in their own areas. And we're always doubly impressed when they adopt the birds they rescue themselves. 

So thank you, Livia and family, for being our duck heroes of the month! The thought of Thelma, Louise and Huey out of danger and safely in your arms has brought sunshine into our hearts.

Non-Chlorine Swimming Pool Options

We're always happily impressed with the number of families who allow their ducks and geese into their swimming pools with them for added fun and interaction, but is your pool really safe for your feathered friends?

High levels or continued exposure to chlorine (and other pool chemicals) can cause feather damage, dry skin, peeling bills--and when ingested... well... do you drink your pool water? It's just not healthy and it can interfere with healthy levels of intestinal flora.

This is why many families who share their pools opt for salt water pool systems in lieu of chlorine systems. Salt water systems use low amounts of salt that normally can't even be tasted. This means there are no dangerous chemicals in the water that could harm your duck or goose.

There are many salt water pool systems out on the market today and they all use the same process. Ask your local swimming pool dealer for more information!
