    Ducklings in the brooder, how do you keep the water clean?

    Right now I'm using little mushroom containers zip tied to their cage.

    Faith, trust, and pixie dust. [​IMG] I haven't found a way yet. Messy creatures. But their cuteness makes up for it.

    I just tried to refresh the water frequently and wash the containers daily.

    raise it up maybe? for my chicks I always have it up on a platform they can easily get on , but all the dirt falls through the wire so it doesnt mess up the water.
