    They love their new water platform and I am already loving the drier shavings!

    Clever idea with the waterer! My ducklings have been making a MESS of the tiny brooder box they share with the chicks- I'll have to rig something up like that when I switch the ducks to their own box!

    For the base of the water platform we used a concrete mixing tub from Lowes. They have already splashed a ton of water in it and the shavings are all still dry. Yay!
