It is mild enough day and night that we are comfortable making changes. The frost free date is still 5 weeks away, but extended freezing times are over for this winter.

We use rubber tubs in the winter. A tub in each pen provides enough water for a day. As the weather warms the birds need more water each day and we convert to the bucket and bell drinker system.

The ducks keep their tub. They like to climb in it.

Ducks are waterfowl not poultry and have different needs.

5 gallons each day is consumed in each pen. In the hottest days we refill 3 times a day. Right now once a day does the job.
