    I am totally impressed with my critters, I bought those little nipple watering gadgets that you screw into the bottom of the bucket. It took my chickens all of 15 seconds to peck at it and get a drink, my ducks a little longer but they figured it out! It's been a godsend, no more poopy water and their bedding stays dry! I'm so happy and I think they like it, the ducks sit underneath it and drink, so funny to watch. The chickens all gather underneath and take turns. So if you see these at the feed store, my suggestion to you is "BUY THEM!!!" you won't be sorry! Now I'm looking for those automatic feeders, the ones they step on to let the food down. [​IMG]

    But ducks MUST be able to submerge their heads underwater to clean their nostrils. Do your ducks have deep water somewhere to do that??
