    Uh, yah, they can swim in a saltwater pool but... your dad is so seriously NOT going to want them in his swimming pool! lol

    They make water utterly filthy very, very quickly. They will clog up the filters with their feathers and poop, and make everything disgusting.

    You're better off fencing them out of the pool area and giving them some kiddie pools filled with water from the hose and dumped daily. They'll be happy and your dad won't want to wring your neck--or theirs. [​IMG]
