Hi All, We currently have 9 ducks...6 Pekin, 2 Rouen, and 1 Khaki Campbell. We have a pond with a aerator and duck house that they normally stay in around the spring, summer and fall months. in the winter they have a hard time with the snow and having a spot to dry off so we keep them in the pole barn and let them out when the weather is nice to go for a swim. They are kept in a 20x15 area with a house for them. Barn is cold but they are out of the elements, we are in northwest Indiana. It's a concrete floor, which i know is hard on their feet, so we typically use and thick layer of straw for bedding. This year we have been going through it like crazy and it has been getting wet terribly fast. Does anyone have any other bedding recommendations, or know what we could put down underneath the straw to help? Especially when the weather is warming up and cooling the concrete sweats terrible which does not help. Just trying to find something that may keep a little longer and don't have to risk the chance of getting moldy. Looking forward to hearing all your suggestions!
