    Ducks like to play in the mud. The best you can do is offer clean and fresh water at all times. Make sure the water is deep enough to dunk their heads in and if you can offer swimming water (small pool or large container). They will take care of themselves.

    Don’t worry too much , if you provide water they will clean themselves.

    It bothers you more then them ,
    I hear ducks can get as dirty as pigs
