I'm leaving for a trip on Saturday and my best friend is taking care of our place for the week..i knew she didn't like birds, but i did not realize the extent of this fear and she said she isn't planning on touching them at all.. (had i known this, i would've waited to get them till we get back) I have 3 ducklings (barley 2 weeks old) and 4 buff orpingtons (~3 weeks old) (as well as 4 CX outside) and i want to make sure their living conditions stay clean. I usually just plop the little ones together in one box while i'm cleaning out the other, but if she isn't willing to pick them up i'm not sure how she'll clean anything. Since it's just for a week, would it be acceptable/healthy if she could scatter the pine shavings over the messy layer on a daily to every other daily basis? The ducks are my biggest concern because they splash water EVERYWHERE and i don't want mold to become an issue. Please advise.
