    Ok... we now know about how messy ducks are with their water...
    3 week old welsh harlequins are heading outside to their coop this coming weekend, and
    we are looking for ideas on how to setup their indoor waterer so they don't spread
    the water around the coop.
    Post any pictures or share any ideas you have found that work well to prevent
    the coop getting waterlogged...[​IMG]

    Bear with me, as I was recently involved in trying to help the survivor of a raccoon attack, and still grieving about that.

    Please don't let messiness push you to get the ducks outside before you are absolutely certain you have a secure setup.

    Thanks. Had to write that.

    Now, then. Here is a post about water, and #5 has photo's of my Little Fort Knox with veranda (the latter is where food and water are at night), and the basement pen watering station.

    I like the discussion as a whole, also.

    We are currently building a very secure duck coop, and will lock the ducks in
    at night. We live where there are lots of outdoor critters
    So we won't be putting them out/exposed.

    Don't see any link or pictures in your posting ?
