    Well in the wild ducks start to swim as young as 2 days old. Just watch him. Good luck!

    Do you have more than one duck? Ducks are social animals and at least 2 are needed to keep them happy.

    Let it swim today...Just stay with it as it swims.....
    Ducks need other Ducks or they can get depressed and lonely......:(


    Cheers!
