    I have 4 ducks that are making a HUGE mess! I've looked into building a nippled waterer but I'm wondering now if I build this they still need something to dunk their heads in what do I do about that?

    i have the nipple bottle waterers and ive got to say they work very well for me! i would have just a very small paddling pool or something like that just to get in and out of and if your not up for that then you would just have to put water over them to keep them moist then they should be fine! hope this helps

    We advise our customers to use the BriteTap waterer for their ducks but to provide a secondary source of water for the duck severy 6 weeks so that the ducks can clean their nostrils and eyes. This is based on research from the England on the subject. Here's the article on ducks and poultry nipple waterers.
