We just got some baby ducks. They are about 2 to 2 and half weeks old. I have only had chickens before. I didn't realize just how messy they are. I don't mind but, being in the brooder with a heat lamp I am worried the wet mess they make is gonna cause germs and make them sick. Anytime I give them water they spill it out everywhere and cause, the bottom of their brooder to be like mud. Anyway any suggestions. Is there any kind of bedding I can use that won't get so nasty. How do you handle this? I have to give them water and I don't have time to clean the brooder out multiple times a day. One more thing when will ducks start getting in their grown up feathers?
