    Yup [​IMG] I clean their brooder daily. Water gets changed like 2 or 3 times a day because they are such little piggies [​IMG]

    We just sold over 60 ducks because of the mess. They turn everything into a stinky mudhole. I kept two mallards and a pair of geese, but the pond area is still a muddy mess.
