    It has been a long winter for my ducks and finally, they have had a nice clean bath.

    They look so content - probably wondering why it took you soooo looonnnggg to get them back into some water. [​IMG]

    Mine just finally got out of the coop since the weather has warmed up. I put a little tub in their outdoor pen & they are in heaven! [​IMG]

    Oh I bet they ar thankful! [​IMG]

    My ducks must be spoiled, I change that water 2x a day no matter what the temperature or weather. If I don't they just stand around looking at the dirty water until I get the hint. And it might not make any sense, but they like to bathe in the rain and the snow. [​IMG]

    Quote:Mine would be SO excited when i could take the pool out during the winter. but they love their water dirty. they pick up grass and dirt and anything else they can find and then put it in the pool. they like to play with everything in the water and eat the grass. silly ducks.

    Does anyone think that them not having any bathing water during the winter could cause aggression?

    So far I have had no problem with aggression without a swimming pool for them.
