so I jumped into ducks, thinking it would be just like the chickens I jumped into a few weeks ago, but I have quickly realized they are way different! I noticed the ducks like to dip their beak (or bill?) full of food in the water then eat it - so i added water to their food, which semi- solved the problem. The MAIN problem is they drink, or play, in the water until it runs out; not only does that make a gross food/poo soup for me to clean but it leaves them in the soup and without clean water (or any water if it absorbs into their towel bedding). I'm scared to leave them all day without water and in a cold gross mess, so I've been taking them to work with me and giving them water and food every few hours - like a newborn baby - which can't be natural and I feel like a jerk limiting their food/water. I've tried everything I can think of: different types of water containers, letting them swim in the bath and putting the water in as they are preening the water off their bodies, different locations of the water, etc etc etc. anyone have the solution?? I doubt it matters but they are about 2 weeks old a peking, rouen, and mallard. thanks for your help!!!
