    We tried a few different floaty baby-type toys for the bathtub with our ducklings, but they pretty much hated everything. Except for their stuffed "momma duck" which lived in the brooder with them. That they didn't really play with so much as snuggle and nest into:

    Once you start introducing them to water, they'll entertain themselves on their own, just splashing and frolicking around. You can also try freezing some finely chopped greens inside ice cubes, float them in your duckling's water vessel and let them try to figure that out! And if they're living or going outdoors at all, a hose set on the light spray setting is always a good time!
