    I have 9 and 7 week old Khaki Campbell ducklings. They appear to be almost full grown and are in their outdoor enclosure during the day and locked up in their coop at night. I give them feed in their feeder each morning when I put them out and they pick at the ground during the day. I guess they are foraging. Should I still be providing them with food and water at night? So far I have been. At what point do I stop feeding/watering them during the night? Do you just stop giving them it? Also, how do I keep the flies/gnats down in their coop?

    My birds don't get food and water in the coop but they go in at dark and go to sleep and we let them out early (around 5).
  3. Mine are a bit older than yours but they can go without feed and water at night..;)....I use vanilla Christmas trees to get rid of flies and also hang one of those sticky fly catching things....It works great...:)

    Enjoy them Ducks!...:)
