My 5 crested khaki campbell ducklings (3 weeks) seem to want to down their water, but then when I go to fill waterer back up, their shavings are soaked. Following another poster's lead, we are putting doggie pee pads down first and then shavings. Using wood shavings. We've went from a rabbit hutch, to adding on to bottom part for my 5 week olds, and now have 3 week olds in modified dog kennel.I can't keep them dry! My bigger girls spread water out, but not like the younger ones.
