Our Idian Runner Ducks seem to fear the water. They fall in from time to time and are out in nano-seconds! They seem intrigued by it and sometimes get very excited at pond side. The female will start running around in circles and they both love splashing their beaks in it. And I add Lettuce and Duck Weed from time to time which they just love! But they'll just sit poolside and wait for it to float to them. It's like their insticts tell them it's a good thing, but something is holding them back. We've got a 100 gallon pre-formed pond on it's way. I hope it isn't wasted on ducks with aquaphobia. Has anyone else experianced this with their Runner's? The pond is bigger in relation to the Ducks than appears in the photo.
