Can anyone help me out? These ducks make such a MESS! Their brooder is always a muddy swimhole (and I only put a regular waterer, not a dish), I had a couple of ducklings this year die either from drowning, or getting stuck in the mud they make so quickly. I tried pine shavings, but the waterers fill up with them and then they can't get a drink. I tried newspaper, paper towels but it gets too wet too fast (minutes). I have taken them outside into an enclosed pen, but then they were getting their feet stuck or their heads stuck in the wire. Out of 40 ducklings, I haven't had a batch that hasn't had these problems, so I need some expert advice.
