Hey guys - question for you...so I got Nettie's training diapers for my ducks (they are 6 weeks old) and I am working on getting them use to wearing them gradually (a couple of minutes on then off, few more minutes on next time,etc.). They keep trying to peak them off with their beaks. I've held their beak (not covering the nostrils) and said no like Nettie recommends in her write up that came with the diapers, however it doesn't appear to be working. The ducks help each other as well...take the others off. I really would like to keep them as indoor duckies, any advice?



Here is a photo where I caught quackers in the act...:)

Well, for Pete's sake.... don't give up, I am sure there's a way to get through this. Wish I had some experience with it, though. If I had fewer ducks I might have gotten them diapers, but with eleven runners, I reckoned I would be spending the entire day on diapers!
