    I want to let my 5 week old welsh harlequins go into the kiddie pool this weekend instead of the tub. They obviously love the water. Can dicks of this age swim in colder water supervised?

    As long as you're watching them and dry them off afterwards, they should do just fine. Have fun!

    My 3 week old ducks do fine in the kiddie pool supervised and dried with a towel afterwards
