I know that ducks have an oil they spread on their body to keep them waterproof, and that their moms usually use their oil to spread on their ducklings so the ducklings can swim at a younger age. My question is how old should ducklings be before they start swimming?
I put mine on my bathtub at two weeks old. Tub was filled with warm water. As far as outside I suggest waiting till they have their juvenile feathers.
