Hi! I currently have 3 five day old ducklings living in a 3.3’x 1.7’ in an old guinea pig/rabbit cage(the small type that they sale at big pet stores). I was thinking of upgrading to a baby pool in a few days. I currently have them on bath towels as they were on shavings first and one tried to swallow one. She’s good now but that was quite worrying so I moved them over to towels with the guidance of some on this forum. I was thinking of staying on towels for at least a while longer, could I do this in the pool? I like that the brooder that they are in now has a thick wire top to it as I have a old cat who, isn’t allowed in the room with the ducklings but I do like the extra precaution. I have seen some wrap mesh/chicken wire around the pool. What type of mesh would I use to do this and how would I secure it(zipties??)Thanks!
