Sorry if I am asking too many questions here, but my chicks should have hatched/shipped today. (Happy birthday chicks!!) My question is, when they are old enough to go out in their coop/run, they will have a run mate. I have a white pond duck, (and 3 rescued wild ducklings that should fly off before the chicks are ready) and he has a kiddie pool that he likes to play and swim in. I know that chicks can drown very easy, but what about adults? I have placed a concrete block in the pool so the ducklings can exit easier, this seems to work very well for them. Would a chicken be smart enough to go for the block to exit the pool should he find himself in it? or should I re-locate the pool (and Mr. 5 Duck duck) to a separate location? I would hate have a lonely duck, but a duck without a pool... well, aint a happy duck..
