Should i keep water and food in coop for my ducklings and chicks at night? My ducklings spill water all over the place and soak the bedding.
There is no need for food/water to be available at night - once they go to roost they don't eat/drink. That being said, if you confine them to the coop at night you need to be sure to be committed to going out to let them out at a reasonable time so they have access to food/water again if you keep it in the run and/or replace the feeder/waterer if you are simply removing it from inside the coop for hte night.
