    I am looking for some ideas for a duck waterer that will keep their drinking water “clean”. I know that is dang near impossible, but would like to see what others have come up with.

    Have you seen the ARTICLE section of this website yet? There are a few articles on how to build a waterer.
    Unfortunately I am on my phone right now and can't post a direct link to that area for you but I will come back later today (from my computer) and do so if someone doesn't beat me to it.

    I just use 2-1/2 gallon feed buckets filled with water. My ducks drop food into their water, so it’s not going to stay clean no matter what I do. But they can’t get into the buckets, so they stay poop free. My ducks dunk their heads and drink. In the morning, I dump them onto my trees or garden, rinse and refill them, then top them off later in the day. If I also have a kiddie pool out, then I just use two buckets. In cold weather, when the kiddie pool is gone for the winter, I put out three or four buckets, which I have to rotate through the house to thaw as they become solid ice. I have six ducks.
