By the time they are a few days old they enjoy some supervised pool time. But be careful they water log quick without mom's oils to water proof them. Only give them a couple minutes to begin with then place them in a warm draft free area to dry off.

Enjoy! nothing funner than watching ducklings swim!

Yeah just give them a little bit of a bath time once or twice a day and make sure they get dried off good. They don't have any waterproofing until they get their feathers and they can easily drown if they get too tired.

Thank you all for your advice. Can't wait to watch them swim!!!!!

At what age do they get their feathers and when can they be left unsupervised by the water?
