    It has been posted before, but I need more ideas!
    They sure splash up a storm. I knew they would, but crap!
    What do I do when they get wet? Let the heat lamp dry them or do it myself? How do I STOP them from getting wet?

    I use either a butter tub or some sort of tub with a lid and cut a hole in it so they can only get their heads in. When they are a little bit bigger and start filtering the food out the bottom the water comes out the sides of their beaks so then the container goes into a dog bowl to help save wet bedding.

    I am a geniuse. I am using a few small toddler no spill snack containers that only allow for a small hand to fit in. No swiming in my brooding box!
    But, we will see how long it takes for them to grow out of that great idea...
