I have 18 chickens and 2 ducks that we got in early March at 2 weeks old. My ducks are a buff and a pekin. When they were little, we put them in the bath tub to get them to clean themselves and get used to the water. I didn't think about it at the time, but never made the water deep enough to where they couldn't touch. Now they are mature and outside. They REFUSE to get into our pond to swim or clean themselves. We have tried everything, even throwing them in. They still get out as fast as they can. Should I have taught them to swim as babies? In the wild a mother duck teaches her babies. How do we get them to get in the pond? At this point, they sit in the water feeder and clean themselves. Any help woudl be appreciated.
