Just got the babies today. They keep trying to squish themselves into the waterer to play. Is it too early to let them have short, supervised, swim time in my bathtub? The bathroom is very warm and they wouldn't be out of my site.

I've always let my call ducks swim when they're a couple of days old....supervised of course and not for too long the first few times so they don't get waterlogged. Make sure they get under the heat lamp to dry out good after their swim.
