Hi, my new duckling (3 days old), Mr./Miss Duckles, wont stop eating the bedding. Will this hurt him? Of course I know it's not good. how do I get him to quit? Duckles is in brooder with 2 chicks, they scratch at it and peck at the bottom, and Duckles will come over and start eating the bedding where the chicks are pecking. I tried putting a little piece of bread in there but the chicks keep scratching it away.
