I switched from pine shavings to @standleeforage Flock Fresh chopped bedding. It's silky soft and I hope the ducks and chickens enjoy it a little better. Honestly, the premium pine shavings are messy and hard to keep clean. I'll keep you updated on how the chopped hay works but so far, so good. As for coop changes, ducks are messy eaters on a level a toddler couldn't reach. I had to raise the hanging waterer by using a small galvanized steel trash can, so the ducks would quit knocking it over. In the back of the coop against the wall, you'll see two small steel bowls. They are screwed to the wood and the ducks can eat and drink easier... albeit, still messy eaters.
