I recently got ducklings and although they seem to be fine, they are drinking a huge amount of water. There are twelve of them and they drank 3 quarts of water in 3 hours. does anyone know the normal amount they should be drinking and what i can do to make them not drink as much. If it matters they are almost two weeks old.

Uhm, ducklings drink ALOT of water. They drink it, they splash it, and that is normal and healthy and right.

Once you recover from fainting from that news, take a look at these links. Life can be good again.
