One immediately caught on, he was so interested, before he knew it his head had found water! Then siblings two, three, and four quickly caught on! It might have taken two and a half minutes! Make sure the bowl is big enough for them to clean their nares and the holes are small enough that they can only fit their heads in! It works wonders! You'll love it!

I'm so excited, you should sell this idea i am sure alot of people would buy it. my ducklings come April 25 so until they arrive i will be on the search for the perfect container for this duckling water bowl.

Thanks AmandaVirginia!

For this batch of ducklings I'm using paint pans. Even newly hatchedcucklins can stand up in thr bottom of the "Deep" end.

 

For my first batch of ducklings I used a flat-ish plant suacer for drinking water their first week and then I moved on to a larger flat yet shallow casserole dish.

 

The rubberbands are a great idea :).
