    We are building a home for our two new ducks. We live in the desert and next floor is wood. Do we have to put anything else on the floor or can we leave it just wood and hose It Off?

    [​IMG] In a desert non humid environment, you may be able to get by with doing just that. If problems arise, you can always add bedding. Good luck with your birds.
