What type of bedding are you using? How many ducklings in what size area?

Ducklings can be stinky it just goes with the species I really don't know what could be making them smell like wet feed unless they are laying in it But it sounds like you are keeping their space clean.

You may need to track the odor with your nose, with the ducklings out of the brooder.  My ducklings always smelled nice and fresh right after bath time.

 

What kind of feed are they getting?
