    you have to also note that the title of the thread is "Show Off Your House Ducks" so yes you will be in the minority

    I ask that you please not criticize the users of this forum and the choices they make
    we are all here to learn and love our critters

    Thank you

    Excuse me. I was trying to express my opinion--not to criticize. But I hear you.

    I would move their food and water further apart! I did this and it significantly decreased the mushiness. Now they run back and forth to the food and water instead of sloshing the water into their food and vice versa. No more than maybe three feet apart, since they have to have water to eat, but enough for them to get a mouthfull and then go get a drink.

    I know this is pretty old but I was just looking through the thread- I have two ducks, Princess Bubblegum and Marceline. I thought you would appreciate it :)

    I've always wanted a little bird like that. I wish I had enough room to have an aviary or a large cage! Or feel comfortable letting them out.

    Yes. You have the right idea. I have a big cage but do let him and his wife out to fly when I'm home. They love it. But they poop so I'm super vigilant about cleaning it up. Eventually they go back into their cage on their own.
