Will some kind of gravel hurt or mess up mandarin and wood ducks feet?
I'm not sure... but it does get stinky fast.
Have you heard of deep litter?
That is what I like to use in my covered (chicken) runs. I essentially do a modified version of it... because I pickup whatever dropping I can identify, even after they've turned into flat grass covered looking dry pancakes. I aim to make the floor like the forest floor... a mixture of pine needles, dry leaves, grass clippings.. type stuff. This majorly prevents smell around the edges when it rains compared to when I had bare dirt or sand/pebbles. It feels spongy to walk on but doesn't get muddy. It has taken quite a while to build it up for me.
Anyways it might be an option for you.
i have river pebbles scattered around the pond area and lawn dirt which is some kind of sand really in the rest of the area. the dirt/sand is very soft. it's dirt, not sand, but very fine.
