    i can let them swim in a little bowl while im watching them and doing homework . Im willing to get diapers and lease and also take them outside i have a small patio. but when they get older can i get a larger dog cage and put blankets on the bottom and make the bowls bigger. im willing to get a kidde swimming pool for them. Please help everyone upset with me on the page but If i dont take them in the will bw killed no farm or shelter will take them in. I HAVE TO DO WHAT I GOT DO SO ALL I ASK IS FoR HelP. what do i feed them? what must the bath water temperature be? how long can they stay in the heat?

    what do i feed them?
    duck food or layer feed

    what must the bath water temperature be?
    depends on age when you would get them, if this summer, then they will be full grown and you won't need to worry about water temp


    how long can they stay in the heat?
    again, depends on when you get them but if summer, they will be long past needing heat

    can i take them out town with me?
    the logistics of that could be quite the pain in the rear depending on how you travel and how long you are traveling

    can they get on a plane?
    no

    can I take them on a basket bike and let them stay in the basket?
    that will depend on the duck, but they may not be too pleased with that

    can they walk on pavement / grass/carpet/tile?
    avoid hot pavement, it will burn their feet. They are ducks, they walk on stuff outside, which includes grass.

    I don't think anyone is mad at you. There have been many replies to your other post asking for clarification, giving suggestions, and offering information. Your posts are inconsistent and you aren't answering people's quesrions. It makes it hard to give good advice or helpful information.
