I have two 18 wk pekin girls and have been trying to intigrate them to my pond. I made them a nice duck house with a door for access to the acre large pond. I put them in their new house and they don't want anything to do with the water. Not so much as taking a drink from it! I have to give them a bowl of water so they don't overheat (it's hot out). They use their washtub "pool" and other containers to swim in back in the house so I know they love water. Funny ducks what can you do with them lol. *I forgot to add they also despise peas. I got them some special for them and they turned their bills up at them. I even mixed it in with their favorite food, cracked corn, and if they accidently ate a pea they would spit out the outside and shake their heads. They ate every scrap of corn and left the peas. Do I just have weird ducks or what ?
