1. i let my ducks swim this morning for about twenty minutes, and then let them dry for maybe twenty more, and when I went to get them three were near death. Fortunately I was able to save two, but one of my black runners died. I had the same problem last year with my cayugas. They seem like they can't seem to dry themselves and they keel over and get real stiff. The two that survived seem perfectly fine, and they are running around with the others. Does anyone know the cause. For safety I am not going to let them swim until at least five weeks old. 2. I gave my ducks peas, and the natives were restless. It was hilarious they were going crazy for them. However they seemed to have a hard time eating them whole, should I hold off as a choking hazard, or just don't worry so much? 3. I was planning to let them live outside after five weeks which would be mid February. It still gets cold at night, should I bring them in at night or can they take cold weather once they feather.
