So we got a few new ducklings for the homestead and after reading the forums a bit I know they need a better water source than the nipples we use for our chickens. We purchased a 5 quart hanging Fount and after changing and refilling it a few times I knew I could do better. I figured I needed a Fount that could be used in the run so I could ditch the pans and large tubs I have been using and cleaning constantly for my older ducks. I had already made Aarts no wasted feeder https://www.backyardchickens.com/articles/aarts-almost-waste-free-funnel-bucket-feeder.67218/ (@aart thanks so much saved me $$$$$) And as I was filling it up mused why couldn't I modified this for my ducks..... After pondering the idea for 30 mins I scraped together supplies from around the stead. This is just my proof of concept. Will be getting a few rubber bulkheads to seal it up tight, and add a refill pipe with screw on lid so I don't have to pop it apart to fill. Hopefully this will reduce the mess my ducks make and if nothing else make a nice mini pond .
