I'm trying to get ducks in May and although I've raised chicks before, I've heard that ducklings can be a bit more...messy. So I'd like to get some advice from my more experienced duck-keeping friends about how to best keep them clean and dry (or as clean and dry as possible) and warm and happy in the brooder. What is the best type of bedding material? I've used aspen chips with my chicks, but would pellets, or something else, be better for the ducklings? What's your favorite/best way to give them water without soaking everything? What do you feed them in? Should I use a bowl/pan, a chick feeder (with the holes - though do their bills get too big for that pretty soon?), or a trough-type feeder? Any other tips? Thank you very much!
