We have four new ducklings, two pekin and two mallards, and they are less than a week old. Do we need to put out a water source for them to play in? We have drinking water available to them right now. We have them in a brooder, with a red light, in our barn. Are we giving them enough attention having them out there? We have dogs and a cat inside our house, so I don't think they'd be safe in here, even for a little while. Wouldn't want to take the risk. Yet I see the other posts with ducklings in the bathtub inside houses and being cuddled indoors, etc. Am I neglecting my ducklings by keeping them in the brooder and checking on them a few times each day? We took them out and petted them today for a few minutes, and they quacked and quacked and begged to go back into the brooder. Are we making our ducklings anti-social? I hope I don't sound nuts. I simply don't know what is appropriate to do with ducklings.
