|Here he is hosing out the bottom of the cage.|
I've been told by several people that, "Ducks are messy." OK, what does that mean? It means they get into their water and get it everywhere! I don't know how they do it. They have a 1-quart waterer in the cage with them. Somehow they manage to soak every last pine shaving that's in there. It doesn't seem like there's enough water in there for them to do that. The wet mess attracts flies, lots and lots of flies. And it doesn't smell so great. Luckily they should be going into the yard pretty soon.
I bought a mixing tub the other day to give them the chance to get in more water. They loved it! My son put it on the deck and filled it with water.
They grown a lot, but still don't have feathers. I'm not sure if that's normal or not.
They're so stinking cute that you can stay mad at them for being so messy.
