    My duckling brooder is stinky! Is there any way i can make it smell better? Would a spray air refresher be bad for ducklings?

    Hi!

    Sounds like you may need to rearrange the watering system.

    Could you describe how the water and food and bedding are set up? We should be able to help you out.

    Spray air freshener does not seem like a good idea.

    only spray air freshners into the brooder if you want to potentially kill them

    duckling brooders need cleaned out about every other day to every day, just part of their charm. [​IMG]

    BackyardAnita, maybe you could look at 70%cocoa and tweetysvoice waterers. They might inspire you, at least help you out of your despair. It is, by the way, a temporary situation. They will eventually grow out of the brooder. Still, water management is always something that can make your life with ducks much more enjoyable.
