Hey all, I need some advice. Recently I suffered a major attack on my duck flock, and went from 14 to 3 in just a day. The remaining half grown duckling was killed in the night house by something unknown - it nailed her in the back of the head and she died, but it didn't eat her. It was my own fault for forgetting to close it up that night, and I feel guilty about it. Did the same thing to a silkie chick that was in there. If anyone has any idea what would do that, I'd appreciate you telling me, but I digress. Anyway, the only 'upside' to this is that the remaining ducks are finally using the duck night house, which means I finally need to get bedding for it, especially since I'm taking back two female ducklings I gave my aunt earlier (with promises of babies in the spring!) so I can have a nice flock of three females and my one remaining male, who survived both attacks. I don't really want to use pine shavings, because I can just imagine the mess the ducks would make in them, plus they would be really hard to clean out of there. I was thinking maybe hay, but I wanted to hear peoples' opinion on it. What do you think would be best for a dirt floor?
