My Pekin's Don't like the pond

    I have five 2 month old Pekin's that don't want anything to do with our pond. They would rather walk around the yard or sit in our garage (where there house is until we predator proof our outdoor house, grrr). I nudge them in, they get wet and walk right out to preen their feathers. They seem very prissy, like little girls that hate getting dirty or wet. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

    I have a welsh harlequin. She HATED the pond when she was little. She now LOVES the pond.
    They know where it is, so they can eventually decide to use it or not.
