    I got 2 baby ducks and someone said to try a guinea pig water bottle thing, and they got the hang of it, is that okay for them for source of water?

    that will work, they do however need to be able to submerge their bill and eyes in water to keep them clean so maybe let them have access to a dish of water for a little bit each day

    Ducks need a deep bowl of water at all times. Ducks need water so they dont choke on their food.
    The water bottle is useless with ducks.
    They must clean their bills and vents at all times.
