I have my 2 ducks in a temporary pen till I get their other one built.
It's a chicken wire pen attached to a dog house. (It's a pretty big house.)
I lock the ducks in the dog house at night so no predators can get to them. No worries they have plenty of ventilation.

My question is do I need to supply them with food & water over night? They've been making a disaster of the duck house bedding with water in there.

They would only be without access to food & water from about 9pm till 6:30am. Is that too long?

Thanks!

Once my ducklings no longer need a heat lamp, I don't keep food and water in the coop with them overnight. They are waaaaaaay too messy.
