My ducks don't get to have a pool in the winter because we shut our outside water off so I wouldn't have a way to change the water...we use a kiddie pool for them to swim in. They have a deep bucket of heated water for them to dip their heads in to clean their eyes, but they look really scruffy! I don't know if they're cleaning their heads in the bowl at all... I've kept ducks in the winter before, but no more than two or three and I have seven right now. I've never seen ducks get so scruffy looking. They seem perfectly healthy - eating, drinking, pooping, quacking and running around in the snow. I was thinking about taking them in and washing them in the tub. Would this be okay for them? It's very cold outside and we've been getting snow. I don't want them to freeze. I know they oil their feathers, but they're feathers don't look as sleek as they usually do and I'm concerned that they're not being oiled properly or something. Is drying them with a towel okay or should I dry them some other way? I don't want to put them outside all wet, but I think they need to have some swimming time.
