An Unexpected Dip

The baby ducks started out with a basic chick waterer. I wanted to give them a waterer where they could dunk their heads, but keep things as dry as possible. After doing a bit of research, I cut a hole in the side of a gallon milk jug. I guess I should have cut a smaller hole.


This little duckling was peeping up such a storm I thought she was stuck.


As soon as I stuck the camera in the brooder she hightailed it out on her own.


A redesign might be in order!
