This has probably been asked a million times, I know I have read a few things about it, but can't remember specific answers. When you have a pen that you put your ducks in each night, do you clean it out every single morning? I think I read somewhere that someone put hay or straw down, and only cleaned it completely out every few weeks, that they just added clean straw to the top??? What I worry about is how gross it gets around the pen from spraying it out every single day. I wish there was a book that had answers to questions like the ones that are always asked on here.....about cleaning pens, how to feed, different pens, stuff like this. I would love if everything from this forum was in a book....just a modgepodge of ideas of what work for people, all nice and neat in a book with a table of contents!!! Doesn anyone have a favorite book they refer to over and over about the every day things. I have Storey's guide, which I LOVE, but I want a book that is less encyclopedia like, and more everyday like. My biggest things I need to learn more about is feeding and cleaning. My feeding post got good answers to, so I am hoping for the same thing for this question, even though I KNOW it has been answered sooo many times.....I am slowly going thru this whole forum, but I am only on about page 215 right now, and once I read so many things, I think I forget a lot of what I have read. Thanks so much everyone!!
