Okay, I am going to move 5 Muscovies (4 ducks 1 drake plus a youngster when it can go out of the house when feathered) into the barn over winter. Even with pine shavings down they will likely have the whole area sopping in feces before long. I love my ducks but they are so filthy. Non stop pooing. The area is about 8ft x 17 ft. There is no run as their winter housing is in the centre of the barn. So no day browsing. For those in similar situations how do you manage the ducks mess for 5 months in the winter? I'd love suggestions on what others have done. I have 3 turkeys and their pen shavings only need changing every 4-5 months as their poo is much more firmer and dries up fast. Chickens the same, only the ducks are a challenge.
