    My ducks have a pool. (I change it everyday), a fan, WATERMELON, ice cubes. Everything a duckie could want. But they still seem uncomfortable. Anything else i can do for them?

    I think that's pretty good not much else, maybe give them separate drinking water that has ice in it or something.

    Can you get bags of ice from a gas station? Dump a bag of ice in their pool. If you live in a dry climate then hose down their pen and the evaporation will help to cool the air. If you live in a humid climate don't bother with the hosing - it will just make it more humid.

    I freeze water in gallon ice cream pails and put in the water everyday. You can use milk jugs or any kind of container that will fit in your freezer. I use ice from my ice maker to.

    Sounds like you have done everything you can for them then [​IMG] They seem to be very well looked after.
