    I HAVE HAD MY MALE AND FEMALE ALMOST A YEAR NOW. For the last week my female is molting. And now here's the thing I'm not sure about the last few days they haven't gotten in the pool just using their drinking water to put their heads in. Is it normal or should I bring them in for a bath. Just don't understand [​IMG]please help if you can thanks

    It's normal
    The ducks just don't feel like going in
    My ducks haven't swam in a couple of weeks
    Either and some of them don't swim at all
