    I would like to know if I can swim in the pool after they were already in it? It is a 10 ft pool with hose water. They are about 4 weeks old and they only have a few feathers.

    Sure, it's not all that different from swimming in a pond. Just don't drink the water.

    The way I got my ducks into their pond is by getting in first! It was only up to my knees.


    In my grandmas pool I got in waist deep with them, I don’t think I would put my face in that water...
