    Is it okay to give my two 2 week old ducklings a small shallow pool to play in, it is lovely and warm here so they would dry out quick?

    Go for it....you will enjoy watching them as much as they will swimming and playing in the water. Throw a handful of peas in the water for extra enjoyment.. i always love watching my guys dive down trying to find them. They will get waterlogged pretty quick since they dont have feathers yet - but a few minutes play time will be good for them- give them a quick rub down as you take them out before putting them back into the warm brooder.
