I just inherited 2 ducks from my son who thought it was a cute idea to buy ducklings for his babies on Easter. They have outgrown their coop and have become a nuisance at his house now they are doing the same at my house. I have plenty of room for them in my coop however; they are the smelliest critters that my kids have ever brought home. I have a tub of water for them plus 2 automatic waters that are completely emply when I come home. The tub is full of sticky, muddy muck that will gag a maggot. That's a pretty crude discription but very true. I don't know anything about taking care of these guys or girls............ I guess they're both girls---maybe. How do I tell? The only thing that I know for sure is that they are white and they smell up the place.
