Me again......just got my 2 new mallards. 2-3 days old. Came in box with gro-gel. Got them into the brooder. They didn't seem that thirsty, but they both drank. Did the take water out for 15 mins, put it back in for 15 mins.....4 times. Put in food, and they are going nuts! They haven't stopped eating and drinking, haven't even slept. I am concerned that they will be taking too much water in, So I removed food and water to give them a rest. My other ducklings never went on an eating/drinking splurge like these two. They drank some, ate some and passed out for awhile. I have had them home for about 3 hours and they haven't stopped. Heat lamp is at 87F. Should I be worried about them drowning themselves with too much water...or is that just if they are not eating? Is this normal, just little piggies or am I just being a worrier and should let them have it? OMG. I feel like I did when I had my first kid.
