Hi all, I have a number of ducks and drakes (19) and the mess from their water is yuk.
Every morning their ground around the water is absolutely mud. Gross.
Can I teach them to drink from a nipple when most are over 2 yrs old?
If so how do I go about it?. Oh and I do know that I have to buy a nipple drinker first. :roll: :lol:

If it worked it would be good as their water would stay nice and clean
