Monsters?!  Ducklings?!

 

:lol:

 

As I say to myself when they mystify me:  Ducklins is just ducklins!

 

And at their age, they could have had some kind of scare in or near the kiddy pool and so now it's scary.  From their point of view, that's pretty smart, to remember something went wrong there, and avoid it.

 

It could have been something you didn't notice - a noise, something flying above them.

 

I would not push the issue.  Give it a week or so, try reintroducing it in a different place, put some peas or other treats in and near it.  Did they get stuck in it or anything?.
