    They have holes now :):):)
    DO you think my brooder is big enough for six ducklings? Its 90 litre. The thing in the bottom corner is a chick designed heater, the chicks nestle underneath and it heats them :) They have plenty of toys as well :) :D [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It is very creative and cute brooder, but they will outgrow that FAST. Ducklings grow really fast and they get messy once they learn to really fill their beaks with water and fling it around. I think they will do great starting out in that, but be ready to expand.

    And I would watch them with those toys. The strings and beads especially.

    I know, I plan on getting a rabbit hutch for christmas for a bigger brooder, the beads were made for parrots so I think they'll be fine I will keep an eye on them, five are pipping and pecking one isn't and I candled it, yellow fluid was in the air hole is that a problem? :(
