I like to let my ducklings go for a supervised swim everyday, in the bathtub. I do not, however look forward to cleaning the tub everyday. In my backyard, I have a fairly decent sized pond (Probably about the size of the average in ground pool, except round, and 15ft deep in the middle) the the ducks will have full access to when they are grown. If I let the ducklings swim in the pond, will they stay fairly close to the shore/me? Some days I would be able to swimming with them, and I could preform emergency duckling lifeguard duties if necessary(Though I'm not thrilled with the idea, and would prefer that that wouldn't be needed) I'll probably coax them back to shore with peas when it's time for them to go in. So, what do you guys think?
