My ducklings are 4 days old and I put a tin inside their brooder with about 3" of warm water. They love it. Just don't leave it in there unsupervised.

You don't want them to chill so keep close eye on temp of water and take them out when it begins to cool down. Most of us use the sink or tub and put warm water in just to be able to stand first. always staying with them while in the water, then take them out pat dry and put directly back into their brooder to finish drying.
