Yes, yet another bedding question. I'm sorry. We currently have 5 chicks and two ducklings together in a brooder. Right now we're using a brand of pellets called Nature's bedding but are wanting to switch to hay for cost reasons. Is hay absorbent enough for the splish-splash-I-was-taking-a-bath ducks? The pellets are pretty absorbent but the ducks are determined to turn the brooder into a "quackmire."
