This is all they will go in now
Afraid of water
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Our ducks were hesitant about going into the pond and creek at first. I am not a duck whisperer by any means, but I do know that all of the ducks we have had really have a strong bond with the coop they go into at night.
It took about 3 days of us walking behind them to steer them toward the creek before they started going down there every day. Now, they go down to the creek every morning and come back in the evening. It just took some time We do have one Pekin female that would rather go with the chickens in the yard and doesn't like the water.
Now that we have new ducks, their rhythm has been interrupted and we had to start the whole process over again.

I think something happened that made them feel unsafe. It will take time for them to adjust.
