Help!! I moved my ducks out when they were 4 1/2 weeks old and now I have kept them in their run area for one week, to ensure that they know where their "home" is, where I want them to come to in the evening so that I can keep them safe for the night. But now that it has been one week, I want to introduce them to our backyard pond (which I have covered with a web of fishing line for protection) but they want nothing to do with it! I have made a path of green peas from the run to the pond; I have hearded them to the water; and I have picked them up and put them in the pond! All three times they swam for 15 seconds and ran back to the run area!! WHAT TO DO?!!
