    Okay. I will take her out to play. The cotton concerned me. I didnt want them to ingest it or breath it in, especially since little Charlie already has issues. Should I just turn the lamp off? They are literally hiding from it. Also, how do I keep them from getting IN their water. Right now, I have a bowl with a lid that I cut a hole in. They actually stand IN the hole. Lol will a waterer work? I feel like all of them I have found at the tractor supply arent deep enough, and cater more towards a chick than a duck.

    If this stuff your talking about is laying thick on the ground or it’s hard for you to breathe it in then I don’t think I’d take them out till it’s over. I am using a waterer like this they get on top and a leg will go in but they don’t stand in it 758BC0CF-B211-4ED3-A43A-028FD416C92F.jpeg

    VetRx will say it is for adults but I used mine for my ducklings and they were fine. I would put several drops in some water and let her bathe in it for about 5 min.

    What tree produces this. I believe I’d keep them inside. If little is breathing strange that cannot be good for it.

    I kept my little ones in until the pine trees, dogwoods and cottonwoods were done dropping their pollen. I could see green "dust" when the wind would blow. My white car was green for about 2 weeks with white cottony fuzz stuck to the pollen. And I could not breathe that entire time.
