Every day I did research. What to feed ducks, when, how, why. Water. Excercise. The "experts" said that the duckies couldn't swim without Mama.
Don't get them near water, except for drinking because they'll sink.
The Engineer, said "They're ducks"! He bought a large paint tray and put it in the play-pen. He barely got the thing out of his hand and they jumped in. PARTY IN THE POOL!
Like a duck takes to water as they say.
(My folks always told me, don't believe everything you read. This is so true here. Go with your gut)
