Our ducks (runners and WH), are out with the chickens. We put buckets of water out in multiple locations daily.
We have recently gotten some black buckets, and the ducks won't drink from them at all. It doesn't matter if the inside of the bucket is white or black, if the outside is black they won't use them.
It is working out good for us, because now we can put a white bucket next to a black one and the chickens always have fresh water. Has anyone else noticed this, or are my ducks just strange.
