what do you guys use for drinkers/waterers? i know i can just use bowls of water or something when the ducks are grown but they need some sort of special drinker until they are old enough to use just a bowl, somebody recommended a chicken drinker/waterer, but a ducklings bill is a lot bigger than a chicks beak isnt it so would ducklings be able to get the water properly? another method ive read about is using a small round container and filling it with water then filling it with marbles/stones to take up most of the container so that the depth of the water is about 1/4 inch.

which one is best?
Milk jug waterers work pretty well. I have a grown-up version for my ducks...a 5 gallon bucket with lid and 2 holes cut in it. It keeps the mess in the pen down a bit
About 3/4 of the way up? I just eyeballed it based on the height of my ducks. Where you need to put it is going to depend on the size of your ducks.
Well duh! That makes sense, sorry hadn't had coffee yet when I posted so brain was still in

I've gotten lots of awesome suggestions/information from this site. Can't wait until I get my ducks. Have to wait until at least February.....BIG SIGH.....
