    And they won't come near me [​IMG] unless I hbe treats. But anyway, when can start taking away my ducklings and chicks water at night so it isn't so messy? The ducklings are almost 3 weeks and the chicks are almost 5 weeks. Thanks!

    put them in water proof tub and put something under one side to tilt it and put water in not too much, they will love drinking and splashing and you will love not filling waterer and seeing them splash it all out.

    make sure they have a warm dry side with their food
