Best bedding for ducklings? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
I use disposable pads like puppy pee pads. They are cheap on eBay! Just ordered 300 for $15

I like to  keep them on an old sheet or towel that I keep specifically for ducks and chicks, and once they know what their food is (usually after 2 or 3 days) I switch them over to pine pellets that are supposed to be used for horse stalls. Sometimes I mix the pine pellets with pine shavings. It works great because the pellets keep the brooder super dry!

Great idea!  Plus nothing else to buy and more importantly - do-able.  Thank you.

I realize this is an older post... but if you could let me know your wee wee pad supplier, that would be great.  I have 3 hairless rescued dogs who use pads every day and they're expensive.  Cheaper pads would be really cool.

Has anyone tried. Shredded coconut husk. We used to have a snake and we used to get these solid blocks of shreddedc coconut husk that would expand insanely and pretty instantly when you added water to them. The stuff took no time to dry after adding the water to expand. Snakes kinda have this per /poop ( I call it a schploop) thing very much like ducks, so I wonder if this wouldn't be the best thing? I just want.to know if coconut is safe for ducklings or toxic.?I will do more research and get back to you all!but any input would be appreciated!
