I've been brooding three ducklings in a large 31 gal Rubbermaid tote with a brooding heater/wafer thermostat for the last two weeks and it has been going great. The trouble I'm having now is that they are going through more water than I can keep in their brooder. I've actually moved to a small 1 gal cat waterer that continues to release fresh water with 1 inch gravel in bottom to keep them from getting in it. They just splash so much out that the pine shaving are getting soaked. I'm giving them a swim in the bathtub for increasing amounts of time daily but that doesn't satisfy their desire to sling water like crazy water babies. I need some suggestions as to how to keep their bedding dry and sufficient water available. It is too cold to put them in a pen outside so I have to be creative with brooding in my home. I'm open to ideas. Thanks!
