Will the ducks find it to be a treat to have little minnows or feeder fish in their clean kiddie pool a few times a week?
I put fish in the kiddie pool I have for the chickens in the courtyard last summer but they didn't care until I dumped it for cleaning and the fishes all started flopping around.
I know, chickens aren't as likely to go under water to get a meal but I figured the ducks would have a blast. Unless feeder fish would not be safe for them. Considering the crap they would get from a pond, I thought this would be okay.

I so want to put some in for the ducklings when they are a few weeks old and I can put them out for a swim.
I've done it several times for my ducks. Depending on the number of fish you put in.....don't blink or you'll miss it. I put 40 fish in the kiddie pool once for 4 ducks, it took less than a minute.....
