Hey guys! Thanks for the tips! Puppy pads probably would have been more simple than what I'm doing...
But I suppose I could elaborate on what I've been doing! Actually I just started trying it yesterday (the ducks grew so huge and I had to change things up.) Right now I have them sectioned off in a corner of our unused downstairs kitchenette. (You can see it on the photo). They get one towel (since they seem to really like sleeping on a towel), and the rest is all linoleum. I can manage to actually sneak by only having to clea it once every 6-8 hours and it isn't too bad or smelly!
I reach into the area, transfer the ducks into a ferret cage (which is what I'm using to separate the ducks from the rest of the kitchen), then I use a swiffer to push all of the poop and grossness into one huge pile. I use a washcloth to pick it all up for the waste bin.... spray down once with this great stuff called Odoban. (Lots of motels use this to keep the rooms smelling nice... super safe and made of eucalyptus. And it disinfects at the same time) Wipe it up again as to not cause harm to the ducks, and bam--- whole floor is clean and I've not spent a dime extra on wasted materials! Granted, I do have to do one load of laundry a day, but at least the towels and washcloths are reusable.
Anyhow I've been doing this for 24 hours and MAN it's SOOOOO easy. And somehow my house doesn't smell anymore too! So I'm pretty happy about this and the ducks seem happy to have so much space. :D
