I'm not too sure about this, since I've never had ducks before. Hence the title, do ducks (or any sort of waterfowl) need swimming water? To clarify this, waterfowl need water to drink. Yet when it comes to swimming, do they need water to swim in? If so, is it that crucial (do they really need this)? Like, what's the importance of swimming water? Go ahead and answer in the poll and share your experiences! Any help is, and will be, greatly appreciated (no offensive comments, please). Thanks in advance!
