Hi all, I have a couple of 3 week old ducklings (who I'm absolutely in love with) and as you all know, at this age they are very messy! My current set up is this: They spend the night in a Rubbermaid with a towel in the bottom. No food or water at night (I know, they are a bit young for that,but I can't handle th mess!) Early in the am,usually before 5, I get them out and into the tub with lots of food and water. They have about 3hrs of that, then I fill up the tub so they can bathe an I rinse all food and poop down. They go back into the box until about 4pm where we do the same routine again. For, then bath. I let them hang out in the tub for a while, then they get some fresh food snacks around 10pm(still in the tub) One more bath before bed, and they are in the box for the night. This is a very labor intensive system, bit it does cut down on the mess/smell. And I'm still washing 2 poppy towels a day. They are growing ell and are very happy and friendly. What do you all think? Is there a better way? I anticipate these two will be indoors until.fully grown given it is winter,.so I need to get a good system here. What else have you all done? Any suggestions? Would wood shavings be easier? Will th b ok to go outside once they have true feathers? Thanks!
