Hey all, Long time viewer, first time poster here. I have been keeping chickens for awhile (both hens and broilers) and recently decided to dabble in ducks because I have a very large pond for them and we enjoy duck eggs. I am currently brooding 15 ducklings, 13 white layers and a mated pair of Mallards in my chick brooder. The issue I am having is that they are so incredibly messy it is becoming a challenge to keep the brooder clean. I mean these buggers make Cornish Cross seem like clean birds! 70% of their feed and water ends up on the floor which creates huge headaches in a Wisconsin winter. Does anybody have any tips or tricks to modify or build special feeders and waterers to help keep the mess and wasted food to a minimum? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
