    I've had my ducks for a while now their half way to adulthood and they stopped getting into their swimming pool. They've been getting in since they were babies. I cleaned it evey couple of days then poof I cleaned they're water one day and they quit getting into the pool.

    Maybe they realized there are no fish in their pool. I don't really know much about ducks but you can post your questions at the "duck thread." Welcome to BYC

    What did you clean it with? Just water or a cleaning solution?

    Ducks sometimes have insight to things that are off that we don't. Recently someone here had their ducks avoiding their pool only to realize a few days later that a water moccasin had taken up residence around it.

    What type of pool is it?
    It could have nothing to do with changing the water but a spook while they were using it?
    Ducks are silly and if you add some grasses, treat, to the water they wont be able too resist the temptation to swim again.
