My name is Sandy and I recently, 1 week ago, purchased two baby Pekin ducklings from Tractor Supply and thought this would be a great place to get information about my babies. I've read a few threads on here that have addressed a few questions that I had, but i have 1 question that has not been answered to my knowledge. Everytime I pick-up one of my little darlings, it nips at my hands as if it were biting me and would like to know why its doing it. Oops....2nd question: Is there an arrangement that can be made, so the little ones stay dry at night? I have the little one's in a fairly big box, lined with plastic, newspaper and about 3 inches of pine shavings. During the evening they play so much in the water, they drained the water dispenser and have saturated most of the pine shavings. I would like to know if there is something I can purchase a piece of ducky furniture so they can get off the box floor to sleep? Im thrilled to have purchased these lttle ones and look forward to watching them grow! YEAH!
