9 inch pie plate too deep for a 75 degrees swim day?
if laying down the heads are under/in water it's deep enough to be a hazard, always watch baby ducklings when swimming.
I take mine in deep water but only let them swim 15-30 min or until they are tired.
Thanks this is only like 2 inches.
When they get tired they will not have the sense to get out of the water, if they get too tired they will waterlogged as they are not waterproof, then they can drown.
The safest way is to watch them the whole time they have access to it.
i'v never had that problem my ducklings get in and out by themselves and they were 1.5 weeks old. mine are mallards and cayguas, and i'm hoping to add some moscovys here soon as well
Mine seemed totally fine getting in and out more then swimming. They were even more happy with the soggy ground.
OK than I had dumb ducklings once, one wouldn't get out (but could have) - these are babies, just be careful.
mine just sit and play in it occasionally. its a small kitten litter pan probably 2 inches deep and that's it they love getting in and searching the water for food. they stay out of it more than in it
