Does anyone have a suggestion for how I can keep my ducklings from getting their drinking water all over their pen? I am using a “drinker” waterer that holds a quart of water. They drink out of it but for some reason they get more water in their shavings than in their mouth. Their pen is always a wet mess.

Welcome to ducks! :-/

You can make something with a grate for the ducklings. I think on Metzer Farms website on the blog under brooding it explains exactly how many inches you need of a grate based on the age of the birds to keep the bedding dry.
