QUESTION
I have 2 mallard ducklings that just hatched a couple days ago. Is there a certain age I should wait until to let them swim or should it be ok to let them swim now?


ANSWER

Your Mallard ducks are probably much older now. If you hatch some out later, probably wait for a week or so after they are hatched to let them swim.
