[Animal hygiene, water quality and animal health using round drinkers as an animal-friendly water supply for Pekin ducks under practical conditions].
TLDR
In this study the total bacteria count as well as the number of Enterobacteriaceae in CFU/mI was generally higher in the round drinkers compared to the nipple drinkers, and no negative effect on the health of Pekin ducks could be detected in this study.
[Use of the AquaDuc T® round drinker with Pekin ducks under field conditions--behaviour as one indicator of welfare].
TLDR
Findings show that Pekin ducks clearly favor the round bell drinkers over the nipple drinkers, and the round drinkers offer the ducks very good conditions for an animal-friendly water supply.
