Hi everyone...I am a chicken guy. I am picking up 4 call ducklings tomorrow. They are 2 days old. I am thinking of getting a plastic tote container, using hardware wire to raise off the bottom and put wood chips below the wire. feeder and waterer. If I wanted to not do the hardware wire as a floor...has anyone used SAND? Wht are your thougths of using sand in the brooder? Do I need to have a body of water for them to swim in early on, or can I introduce a body of water at 3-4 weeks, once they go outside> any other pointers would be helpful.
