I've had chickens and ducks for many years. However this is the first year I have locked all of them up for the winter...had a rough winter from hawks. They can still go out but their run is much smaller than they are use to because I only enclosed half. That's not the problem. It's inside the coop. I have to clean it every two days because they are soaking all the litter because the ducks play in the water. I have their water bowl and other waterers inside a kiddie pool so that way if they splash it goes into the pool. that doesn't work because they just jump in the pool and splash in that. I cant put the heated bowl outside because then we would have no access to fill it because the way it's enclosed. Is it the shavings I should do different? Maybe put hay down and just keep piling it top every so often. I didn't know if maybe the water would sink down to the floor and the hay would be drier on top. any help is appreciated. Once the snow hits there is no way I'm cleaning this coop every couple days and not to mention the expense of the shavings!
