    Ok so I am trying to prevent water from soaking the entire duck coop where the ducks will sleep at night time. Does anyone have a good container or method to help keep the water from going everywhere and soaking the duck coop? :)
  2. YES! I use a calf salt lick container. They are small, but deep enough for the ducks to get their whole head in. BUT they can't get their bodies in. Get 2 hook, and hook it on the coop door, so water will drain out the door if they make a mess. OR get a flat bottomed rubber bowl, so it doesnt' tip. In my coop, I had the coop set up, so any water would run out the crack I left under the door for draining. Kinda like a house that is settling, and when you spill water, it runs down hill... Well anyway, I've used both types.
