    This is probably a stupid question, but we all know that ducks poop like every 30 seconds, but do they poop while they're sleeping or while they are cooped up for night?? [​IMG]

    I wanna know too! So i dont wake up to a room full of poop (Indoor duck to be) I was gonna keep him in a pet carrier by the bed and then in the morning either take a shower with him [​IMG] [​IMG] or after school let him have a bath! It would be nice if they dont poop in their sleep so that in the morning i dont wake up to a HUGE mess!

    Quote:Once they are bigger and full grown they can actually wear their diaper all night because they do not poop as much lol. Mine get lucky enough to do that on the weekends [​IMG] And why shower with a rubber duckie when you have real ones! [​IMG] Mine love to jump in the shower and scare the crud out of me everytime i go in lol.
