I'm new here and did a search to see if anyone had tips as how to get my ducks to go in their pool and didn't really find the answer. I bought my ducklings when they were 4 or 5 days old. I was told by the people at the feed store that the ducks absolutely cannot get wet until they have their adult feathers. After doing some searching online, which always brought me to these forums, I had read that people were letting their ducklings swim pretty young. Now they are 4 weeks old and I bought them a kiddie pool a couple of days ago. I was going to let them swim yesterday but I ended up having to take one to the vet because he/she is sick. So, today I decided to try and let them swim. The problem is, they refused to get in. I picked one up and put him/her in hoping the other would follow but no luck. And the one I put in the pool didn't want to stay in so up the ramp he/she went and back in the cage it went. Does anyone have any advice on how I can convince them to get in the pool? I did try peas, which they really love, but it didn't work. Should I perhaps try to get them to go into something smaller? Like a baby bathtub maybe? By the way, I have a Khaki Campbell and a Rouen. The Khaki's name is Latte because he/she looked like a little coffee bean when I got it. And the Rouen's name is Squeaker because he/she squeaks all the time, I know it won't squeak forever though. These are my babies.
