I put a brooder inside a pool. Inside the bottom half of a small plastic dog carrier put a layer of wood pellets (sold as pet bedding) and then shelf liner on top of that. I placed the food and water inside of that. The rest of the brooder has cut straw and a light. I got a shipment of ducklings on Friday. One was DOA, one died shortly after opening the package and two are still alive. They seem to be doing really well. Sleeping, eating, pooping and all. They are running all over the brooder and wagging their tails! Anything wrong with what I set-up? I'm new to ducks and these are the ducklings I've wanted since last spring! They are Ancona's. First home I put them in a turkey baking pan lined with paper towels with food and water because I wanted to keep a very close eye on them the first couple of hours.
